Voidstrider

Boise, ID

A well-established and prominent band in the Austin, TX rock metal scene, Voidstrider, now based in Boise, ID, is a three-piece rock outfit composed of Brothers Clint Fischer (guitar, vocals) and R.J. Fischer (drums), as well as Whitney Fischer (bass, vocals), R.J.’s wife. With a heavy throwback to 70s and early 80s rock and metal, Voidstrider conveys a “bold, raw style and big sound: the mark of a true heavy-hitting, no-nonsense rock band.” Born in Boise and raised in Colorado, Clint and R.J. established their musical roots in punk rock and hardcore, starting and playing in bands together as young teens. In 2004, they packed up the little they had and made the trek from Denver, CO to Austin. As a prelude to what would become Voidstrider, their band Strider, established in 2007, harnessed a melodic grit and tone that defined early 70s and 80s rock and metal, all while seamlessly melding a distinct, raw punk backbite. Combining classic rock and heavy metal with their deep convictions and faith, Voidstrider came to fruition in 2010. With Whitney planting the steady (and final) leg by joining the band in 2012, Voidstrider has since shared the stage with bands like Diamond Head, The Skull, Medusa, Josefus, Pentagram, Mothership, The Well, Void Vator, DUEL and Ruby the Hatchet. Their influences draw on legendary groups like Sir Lord Baltimore, Scorpions, Rush, Glass Harp, Highway Robbery, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Iron Maiden, Dio, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, UFO, Budgie, Thin Lizzy, Heart and The Resurrection Band. Their five-song demo debut - Voidstrider EP - has been highly favored among rock critics and fans alike, and the band is due to release a full-length album within the year. Drawing on an energy that only family can emit, Voidstrider continues to grow and evolve as a band while holding fast to their uniquely conceptualized sound.
