Coheed & Cambria
Coheed and Cambria announce they will embark on a Fall headlining tour that will be kicking-off on October 16th at Sayreville, NJ's Starland Ballroom, and will bring the band's stellar live performance down the Eastern sea board, plus dates across the South-West and Mid-West. The four-piece will be joined on the tour run with Pennsylvania's Balance and Composure and San Francisco's I the Mighty.
Recently, Coheed and Cambria teamed up with VEVO to premiere the music video for their most danceable song to date, "Number City." The new single showcases the band expanding and experimenting with their known prog-rock sound. To showcase the unique track visually the guys teamed up with Australian animator Jonathan Chong who masterminded an innovative, stop motion piece for the music video. "Number City" is from the band's epic double, and Top 10 Billboard Chart debut, album The Afterman, which has sold over 200,000 copies, collectively.
Balance & Composure
Balance and Composure is an indie band from Doylestown, PA. The band formed in the winter of 2007 and has released a 6 song EP entitled 'I Just Want To Be Pure', a 12'/CD EP entitled 'Only Boundaries' and a split with Scranton, PA's Tigers Jaw. The bands debut full length album, titled 'Separation', was released on May 10, 2011 via No Sleep Records.
I The Mighty
"We don't want people to just listen to our music on a surface level. We want people to dive into the songs and dissect them and to really feel them," states Brent Walsh, vocalist for the San Francisco Bay Area band known as I the Mighty.
I the Mighty will release Karma Never Sleeps - their new EP and Equal Vision Records debut – on March 27, 2012. "Our new material is pretty different from our previous releases. Karma Never Sleeps is a lot heavier, a bit darker, and has a moodier ambient," explains bassist Chris Hinkley.
The ambitious and captivating EP, which was produced by Erik Ron [Panic! At The Disco, VersaEmerge, Foxy Shazam], features six sweeping tracks filled with soaring vocals, catchy hooks, charging guitars and explosive instrumentations that make for a mesmerizing whirlwind of cinematic soundscapes.
Karma Never Sleeps envelops the listener into dramatic, dreamlike imagery of tales of political corruption, desperation and despair, and even words of cautionary counseling for the young and reckless. Lyrically infused with powerful and poignant storylines, some tracks take inspiration directly from Walsh's life experiences, while others are written as if they were dreams illuminated onto a screen through a stream of imagination. Seamlessly woven throughout each track is the ubiquitous theme of Karma.
Since their 2007 inception, I the Mighty has melded together effortlessly and has already compiled an impressive following of support on the west coast, seeing regular rotation on local modern rock station Live 105 and sharing stages with the likes of Hawthorne Heights, There For Tomorrow, Deftones and more.
"In a sense, heading into the recording together was really a discovery of what our band would become," explains guitarist Ian Pedigo. "The process was very organic. The first three songs actually stemmed from jam sessions we had while practicing our old sets for live shows."
I the Mighty has undoubtedly achieved their goal of creating bright, bold and memorable music on the new EP but certainly don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. Blake Dahlinger (drums) expounds, "At this point, there isn't one singular goal that would satisfy what we aim to do. We want to tour the world. We want to continuously put out records that will hopefully mean a lot to us as well as many people. We want to put our own stamp on the music scene by developing our own sound. We want to continuously set and reach goals throughout our career so that we can better ourselves as musicians and people."
Walsh concludes, "And the thing we hope for most...is that our music means something to someone, the way that other artists have meant so much to us in our lives."
