Free Throw began in April 2012. Since then, they have released two full-length albums, titled Those Days Are Gone and Bear Your Mind. They have also released two EPs, titled Free Throw and Lavender Town. After the release of their debut album, the band embarked on a tour opening for Empire! Empire!
Their album was ranked number 10 on Emertainment Monthly’s list of “Top 10 Indie Rock Debut Albums of 2014”.
Free Throw got their name because the original band members made the decision to form the band by shooting a free throw (basketball). Luckily, lead singer, Cory Castro made that free throw and the band was formed.
In their words: ‘Five dudes in a van trying to play shows, drink beer, and make friends’
