The Billboard
Champion. Bold and confident, the record title is a reflection of a band meeting their own high expectations. The writing process for Album 2 can be difficult for any band hoping to maintain the magic from their first release. On their second offering for Victory Records, The Audition have avoided the sophomore jinx and produced an irresistible album that is part fighter, part lover, and all Champion.

theAudition was formed in 2003 in the suburbs of Chicago by Ryan OConnor (drums) and Joe Lussa (bass) who both shared a common love for music and the desire to tour. The band went through the usual baby band lineup changes, then added Seth Johnson on guitar and started playing local shows alongside bands like June and The Academy Iswith fans being immediately excited by theAudition. With a new demo in hand and half a years worth of local touring accomplished, theAudition was discovered by like-minded local label Victory Records and immediately signed a record deal. A month after signing, theAudition lost their original singer and was on the search for a replacement. The band found a soulmate in Danny Stevens, who came straight out of motor city, Detroit, Michigan. Ryan spoke of Dannys inception in the band, saying "I made some calls to a few people I knew and the one person I really connected with was Danny. We both shared the same passion for music and after writing Youve Made Us Conscious we knew that he was meant to be in theAudition."
