My name is Austin Ervin, 18 years old, from Royse City, Texas. Drummer for Hostile, a metal band also out of Royse City, TX.
I’m self-taught. I never had any “formal” training when it comes to being behind the kit. I was in middle school band, but never high school. I practiced in my shed for years, until I got thrown into the music scene by joining Hostile. I tried starting some of my own projects beforehand, while working part time either delivering pizzas or in hardware stores, but the spark was never there.
I joined Hostile on July 28th, 2016, this band being my first “legitimate” band, and since then Hostile has become my family. We stay playing shows all over Texas (Austin, Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio, Corpus Christi) and up into Oklahoma (Oklahoma City, Lawton). We have an awesome list of shows coming in the new year.
I am proud to be part of the Diamondback and Hostile families.
