About Jonas Sees In Color
Their relentless touring schedule over the past six years has started paying off too. In January of 2013, the band was flown out to Los Angeles to participate in Ernie Ball’s annual Battle of the Bands competition. The band also landed a stint on this year’s installment of the Vans Warped Tour.
Music isn’t the band’s only passion though, the band has been known to bend over backwards for their fans. Whether it be making masks to give out before a show, mailing out free stickers or inviting fans to be in their music videos, JONAS SEES IN COLOR prides themselves in the relationship they share with their fans.
The name JONAS SEES IN COLOR comes from acclaimed novel, The Giver by Lois Lowry. The book tells the story of a boy named Jonas who lives in an emotionless, colorless utopian society. In this black-and-white world, Jonas is chosen to endure the burden of the dreams, hopes, and thoughts of his entire village. As he connects with these memories, he begins to see color for the very first time. Downing adds “Our hope is that the listener will unite with the song and see the colors inside it, keeping the song as a memory of their own.”
