For Immediate Release

NY Prog Ensemble IZZ Set To Release New Studio Album, Everlasting Instant

3/3/15 – New York, NY – IZZ’s new studio album, Everlasting Instant, is scheduled for release on April 7, 2015 and serves as the final installment of a three-part series of albums that began with The Darkened Room in 2009 and continued with Crush of Night in 2012.  Everlasting Instant concludes this epic thematic arc with a fresh palette of sounds, all the while maintaining the sharp and memorable melodies that have become a hallmark of the band.

From the syncopated rhythms and unpredictable meter changes of Can’t Feel the Earth, Part IV, to the through-composed nature of Keep Away, to the uplifting drama of Sincerest Life, the fearlessly modern sound of IZZ continues to surprise at every turn.

Tom Galgano, IZZ’s keyboardist and vocalist who continues his roles as producer and engineer for this album, regards Everlasting Instant as a fitting culmination of the musical themes presented throughout the last two IZZ albums, “Many of the melodies, rhythms and lyrics on Everlasting Instant began as seeds on the two previous albums and they have undoubtedly come to fruition on this new release. Listeners will recognize these subtle variations on prior themes and will also be presented with an exciting new collection of musical ideas.”

The stunning voices of Anmarie Byrnes (lead vocals on “Like a Straight Line”) and Laura Meade (lead vocals on “If It’s True”) are the most present they have ever been on an IZZ release. Contributing lead and harmony vocals throughout the entire album, Byrnes and Meade add a color that makes the IZZ sound on Everlasting Instant even more unique.

Tom Galgano’s keyboard prowess is in full force as he takes masterful solos in “Start Again” and “Own the Mystery” as well as exhibiting superb classical piano work in “The Three Seers.” Guitarist Paul Bremner’s inimitable style continues to be on display in Everlasting Instant as he takes hold of the listener’s attention in tracks such as “Can’t Feel the Earth, Part IV” where his acrobatic style is in firm focus.

John Galgano’s bass provides solid footing to “Sincerest Life” and “Can’t Feel the Earth, Part IV” where his melodic approach to the bass is brought to the fore. The drumming/percussion team of Brian Coralian and Greg DiMiceli, well-known for their unique, yet complementary playing styles, continue to create a one-of-a-kind rhythm section as evidenced in songs like “The Everlasting Instant” (featuring Brian Coralian)  and “Sincerest Life” (featuring Greg DiMiceli).

The IZZ line-up for Everlasting Instant is:

Paul Bremner: electric and acoustic guitar
Anmarie Byrnes: lead and backing vocals
Brian Coralian: electronic and acoustic drums and percussion
Greg DiMiceli: drums and percussion
John Galgano: bass guitar, acoustic/electric guitar, lead and backing vocals
Tom Galgano: keyboards, lead and backing vocals
Laura Meade: lead and backing vocals
 
IZZ’s Everlasting Instant will be available for purchase at Amazon, iTunes and all online music retailers.

In other news, IZZ will kick off the release of Everlasting Instant with a live performance at the New Jersey Proghouse on April 19. IZZ plans to announce more shows in support of Everlasting Instant during the Summer/Fall of 2015. The band also has plans to return to the studio to continue work on their next studio album. In addition, guitarist Paul Bremner is mixing his new solo album. For more information on Everlasting Instant and for the most updated information about IZZ, please visit:

Will blind buy, but I wasn't bowled over by their last release.  Still think My River Flows is their best.

And for some reason it's not even listed in the OP discography Confused

I've kind of lost track of IZZ recently but they are a very good band. I just wish Spotify would catch up on their last 2 albums.

I adored their last album, so this will definitely be an instant sample-unheard purchase for me!

I've liked IZZ. Though the clip on youtube for their new song is quite bad imo - sorry. 

It sounds sooooo cheesy, cliche, and just weak. 


Crushed like a rose in the riverflow.

That's too bad.  Haven't heard it myself - wondering if they're just running out of ideas or something.

I didn't care for the last album too much, so this is not a good sign.
