Hello! Our band just got added to Prog Archives, so I would like to invite you all to listen to and review our self-titled debut album "The Reformation".  We are a female-fronted Eclectic Prog band that formed in Pittsburgh but are now based in San Francisco, and we'd love to get some feedback from real prog fans! Smile
 
Recommended for anybody who likes King Crimson, Janis Joplin, (Syd Barrett era) Pink Floyd, The Soft Machine, Van der Graaf Generator, Hawkwind, Tool, Jimi Hendrix, The Alan Parsons Project, Parliament-Funkadelic, or Supertramp.
 
The Reformation is a progressive rock band that formed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2010.  The name stems from the literal reformation of a defunct group into a more evolved band; in the  figurative sense, they attempt to reform music into their own interpretations.  Their lineup consists of multi-instrumentalists Matt Penco, Kyle Brower, and Caroline Schneider.  These young, devoted musicians show their listeners why they believe that music is the most powerful form of art.
 
Their sound can be likened to many artists, but primarily The Mars Volta, Pink Floyd, Audioslave, King Crimson, Mumford & Sons, and Rush. Consequently, their own style is a melting pot of many different types of music.  They create catchy jazz-funk dance songs while simultaneously incorporating more unconventional elements of heavy psychedelia, atonality, and experimental improvisations.  While remaining progressive, they strive for a commercially viable sound.  Because of this, their songs open the average listenerís ears to multifaceted music with developed musicianship and a tight sound.
 
They released their self-titled debut album in 2011 and their second album, Fatal Expectation, in 2013.  Their music has received radio airplay on 92.1 WPTS-FM in Pittsburgh. In an album review, Music Street Journal editor-in-chief G.W. Hill said, "I like [the Fatal Expectation] album quite a bit. These guys are pretty amazing musicians and the range of sounds is pretty impressive.[...]However you slice this beast, itís creative, inventive and pretty darned cool."
 
They relocated to Oakland, California and intend to tour the West Coast in 2015.  The Reformation is an independent act currently seeking a record label that will assist in promotion, distribution, and tour support.

I came across it on PA a while ago and listened some tracks on Youtube. I found quite enjoyable. Maybe I'll give it a review one day. It would certainly be worth listening again...

I'd actually like to review your new album, "Fatal Expectation".  Where can I get a copy?

You can stream it for free, or buy the download or CD.  CDs will be available in late September 2013.
