The Band

"Born from the remnants of a crumbling post hardcore project, Cost of Attrition is a pop rock duo based out of the Indianapolis, Indiana area. From electronica and metal to pop and rock, years of dabbling in a wide variety of musical genres has given the band a singular sound. Employing catchy guitar and drum driven progressions along with powerful electronic and orchestral ballads, Cost of Attrition delivers an upbeat, larger than life sound. Having recently completed the writing, producing, and recording of their debut EP, “There You Go”, Cost of Attrition is ready to deliver its raw and edgy sound to the world."

Cost of Attrition is Wheeler Castaneda (vocals and production) and Joshua Grow (instrumentals, backing vocals, engineering, and production). Cost of Attrition has landed opening slots for awesome national acts such as Unwritten Law and The Spill Canvas and performed at hundreds of live events.

Hey there friends!

In case we hadn't mentioned it yet, we are working with an awesome group called Tinderbox to get our music sent out to the world! So as of a few days ago we received news that a couple hundred copies of our album were shipped off to radio and press outlets for rotation and review! How frickin' exciting is that?!

We are working on our tour schedule for the coming months and are more than ready to get out of the studio and onto the road! Hope to see you all in the coming months!
