Drummer Adam Cohen and guitarist Matt Cannon don’t make up your typical band. Adam and Matt form As Opposed to Dead, which was formerly known as Try Angles.  Fusing different types of music, As Opposed to Dead will surprise you with their originality and experimental music.  The band has been playing gigs around the area in venues as small as hookah lounges and as large as the Crocodile Rock in Allentown.  Recently I sat down with Adam and Matt to talk about the band and what lies ahead for them.
