It's difficult to put an exact timestamp on when Potsy actually came into being. If you asked them, they would probably say that the concept of the group has existed since mid-2006, when guitarist Bradley J and drummer Brad Rondeau began putting riffs and rhythms together in the former's small New England basement. Bassist Jeremy Borne's arrival in 2007 solidified the group as a strong instrumental act. Flash forward past the trial and error of various working lineups to the 2011 addition of vocalist William Edwards, and you'll arrive at the Potsy that many are now familiar with; the group that wasted no time dipping its toe in the waters of the Boston-area music scene with 2011's self-recorded demo Dyingprettydemos, and 2012's independently released EP Dyingprettythings. The EP was well-received with fans and critics alike, garnering the group airtime on various local radio including WUML 91.5FM, the (now-defunct) Boston Local Music Show on UnRegular Radio, and a spot on Radio 92.9's Upcoming Local Artist page.
Since releasing Dyingprettythings through local retailers Newbury Comics and Bull Moose Records, Potsy has hardly idled. The band has performed relentlessly around New England in support of the EP and publicly debuted much new material along the way. In 2014 and '15, the group found themselves on bills with national acts like Soulfly and Powerman 5000, broadening their reach steadily. In Summer 2015, Potsy entered New Hampshire's famed Rocking Horse Studio to begin recording their debut full-length album titled Adverse, which saw release in June 2016. The LP yielded a promotional CD-single titled Slippery Slope in the interim, and Potsy is preparing for a busy schedule of both consistent performances, and regular rehearsals with no shortage of material in sight.
