In 2008, shortly after debuting their first EP titled "Deo Vindice", TEA was granted the privilege of playing several prestigious music festivals such as Warped Tour, Bamboozle, and Six Flags. In 2009, they performed nation wide after being selected to travel on The Extreme Tour. During The Extreme Tour, TEA was discovered by longtime music industry contributor and A&R scout Dana Piper, who later passed on TEA's EP into the hands of Jon Oliva, (Savatage mastermind and co-founder of Trans-Siberian Orchestra). Almost two years later, Jon Oliva and Christopher Kinder's (Drummer and Producer for Jon Oliva's Pain) pre-production for TEA's debut album has officially wrapped. With the addition of American Idol Top 60 Finalist, Casey Schuber, the TEA lineup is now complete. Without question, the affect these six young musicians will have on the present day landscape of mainstream music will be eternal. Chapter 1 forthcoming?
