Epistasis will be releasing our first self titled record on The Path Less Traveled Records. Pre-order the album and get cool stuff!
Hey everyone, this is Amy from Epistasis.
I'm thrilled to announce we will be releasing our first full length album through The Path Less Traveled Records; (http://thepathlesstraveledrecords.com/home.html) the awesome label that brought you releases by Flourishing, Stats, and many others. We hope to have the album available by Sept. 2012!
The album features 7 original songs, already recorded professionally and mastered by my good friend Sam Stauff at Mercy College studios in White Plains NY. If you haven't heard us, you can stream the album via our bandcamp page:
A brief bio / concept of the group:
The band initially became an entity in 2008, but didin't reach it's current form until september 2011. It underwent 3 different line-ups, and a few aesthetic shifts. In it's current state I feel it is the best, most honest and sincere realization of my ideas in this musical "genre".
The concept behind compositions is basically to make heavy music (metal, noise, rock etc.) that is informed by contemporary concert music (serialism, atonality, electro-accoustic etc.) within a song / band format.
The instrumentation and line-up are:
Amy Mills - Trumpet / laptop processed trumpet Joelle Wagner - Bassoon / bassoon run through an amp/distortion/octave Kevin Wunderlich - Guitar Mike Rasimas - Drums
For various reasons, the label can't fund the entire pressing of the album, so I've turned to kickstarter to reach out to friends, fans, patrons of the arts and supporters of creative music to help us make this a reality. You can think of this as a pre-sale of the album, with the opportunity to walk away with some extra art and handmade objects (all signed and numbered) only available via this project..
What the money will be used for:
All the money raised in this project will go exclusively to pressing and production costs. The album will be pressed to CD, and most likely packaged in the digipack format. My goal is to have the highest quality, aesthetically pleasing product possible.
We have some nice rewards available, I hope you can support the prouction of creative music.
-Amy and Epistasis.
