Originating in a town with little to no music scene, The Breakpoint Method has played a huge role in reviving Central Kansas' excitement for live music. As the number of played shows grew, so did their fan-base. Faced with the famous "you'll never make it in Kansas" line, The Breakpoint Method has proven themselves worthy of national attention and have achieved many goals deemed unreachable. The band formed in 2008 by a group of friends (Barrett Jones, Jimmy Lands, Eric Reid, and Shawn Hay) who all shared the same drive and dedication. Two short months after the band formed, they released a demo to the public that gained them quick and authoritative popularity in their area. The demo tracks even won them spots on the 2009 Taste of Chaos and Vans Warped Tours, both in St. Louis, MO. After playing to crowds of that magnitude, they realized it was time to buckle down and make the band a full time commitment. Having shared the stage with national acts such as Four Year Strong, Spineshank, Seasons After, Thursday, Pierce the Veil, In this Moment, Adema, and countless others, they quickly found that they could hold their own with the same bands that inspired them at a young age. The Breakpoint Method's live performance continuously dropped jaws; citizens of Kansas had not seen that type of performance from local talent in a long time. With tenacious dedication from their fans, The Breakpoint Method knew they needed to deliver their most solid performance on their album, "Empty Promises." After much anticipation, the album was released January 2011 and has received an overwhelming response from fans. Currently, The Breakpoint Method is independently touring the United States.
