BUBBLEMATH at PROGDAY 2017!

"Progress is not possible without deviation.” - Frank Zappa

If Zappa were alive to hear them, he’d almost certainly agree that Minnesota fivesome BUBBLEMATH exudes his philosophy (and daring spirit) with every unconventional rhythmic change, off-the-wall timbre, and multilayered melody.  Their debut 2002 release, Such Fine Particles of The Universe, garnered the band 86,000 My Space followers and the Minnesota Music Academy’s "2002 Best Eclectic Recording” award.

Fifteen years later, the  Eclectic Prog / Avant-Pop / Technical Metal quintet has released their second album, Edit Peptide, which has proven to be a worthwhile wait with its Frankenstein’s monster-formula of lively textures, wacky and virtuosic musicianship, hypnotically robust vocals, and charmingly astute attitudes.   Edit Peptide is a masterful medley of artful aural arithmetic, blending the in-your-face intricacy of Between The Buried And Me and The Mars Volta with the eccentric experimentation of Mr. Bungle, the dense and poppy harmonies of Umphrey’s McGee and Echolyn, the symphonic vibrancy and tongue-in-cheek foundation of Beardfish, and the forceful fluidity of Bent Knee, The Dear Hunter, and Emanuel And The Fear.

By conducting so many divergent styles, refining their songwriting and compositional skills, and most of all, sticking to their guns when it comes to crafting highly challenging and adventurous, but also quite hypnotic and welcoming, tunes, the quintet proves just how perfectly a band can fuse the familiar and the fresh.

Join BUBBLEMATH (US), SHYLOCK (France), FLOR DE LOTO (Peru), SONAR (Switzerland) with special guest DAVID TORN, and iNFiNiEN (US) for the twenty-third edition of ProgDay.  ProgDay 2017 will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 2nd and 3rd, at Storybook Farm in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  For more information, please visit us at www.progday.net.

ProgDay 2017:  FLOR DE LOTO Cancels, HEDERSLEBEN and EPHEMERAL SUN Confirm!

It is with great sadness and disappointment that we must announce that Flor de Loto has cancelled its performance at this year's ProgDay.

However, we have two more great bands to announce:

---------------------

HEDERSLEBEN (Multinational)

HEDERSLEBEN is a spacerock/psyche/krautrock band whose goal is to embrace the mindset and sound of early progressive rock/krautrock.  Often compared to bands like Amon Duul II, Hawkwind and Gong, HEDERSLEBEN was hatched in the village of the same name on the outskirts of Quedlinburg, Germany.  Beside the ancient stone cloister in the half-timbered Bauernhaus, British guitarist Nicky Garratt (an original member of the iconic punk band UK Subs) jammed with krautrock luminary Uve Mülrich, (Embryo), inspiring Garratt’s next project.

In 2012, Garratt became the musical director for Ex-Hawkwind’s Nik Turner.  Garratt gathered musicians to collaborate and record Nik Turner’s Space Gypsy album.  After a short incubation period, the prototype version of HEDERSLEBEN was born from those sessions.

After the success of Space Gypsy, Nicky Garratt took on the musical director position for the legendary Swiss band Brainticket.  Working with original keyboard/flute/sitar player Joel Vandroogenbroeck, the songs were developed by HEDERSLEBEN in rehearsals in Oakland while Joel worked in Mexico.  The result was Brainticket’s Past, Present and Future, the first Brainticket studio album in 15 years.

Upgoer, HEDERSLEBEN’s debut release, was recorded back-to-back with the Brainticket album, and released in 2013. 

Since then HEDERSLEBEN has continued to release albums and evolve, ranging from a new take on classic krautrock to full-blown prog-rock concept albums.  The band has toured the US multiple times, both opening for and backing Nik Turner, and their music has been used in feature films.

---------------------

EPHEMERAL SUN (US)

Started as a project featuring ex-Rain Fell Within members John Battema (keyboards) and Charles Gore (bass), EPHEMERAL SUN began life as a vocal band with an atmospheric and experimental approach to prog-metal. However, with the release of their second album, Harvest Aorta, the band abandoned vocals and found their musical identity in a special captivating brand of progressive rock combining influences from symphonic, metal, ambient, electronica and fusion, presented with a strong, almost cinematic vision. Having been compared to bands like Anekdoten, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater and Finch, but really sounding like none of them, EPHEMERAL SUN has continued the pursuit of their unique sound.   With the release of Lord Of Hounds, they follow the course charted by Harvest Aorta to a darker place.

---------------------

Join HEDERSLEBEN (Multinational), EPHEMERAL SUN (US), BUBBLEMATH (US), SHYLOCK (France), SONAR (Switzerland) with special guest DAVID TORN, and iNFiNiEN (US) for the twenty-third edition of ProgDay.  ProgDay 2017 will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 2nd and 3rd, at Storybook Farm in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  For more information, please visit us at www.progday.net.
