Echo Us Memoirs Published, As A Priori Memoriae Hit's Stores

(9-17-2014- Portland, Ore.)






A recent series of articles runs through Ethan Matthew's distant past until the forming of Echo Us, his eventual hospitalization in Nov 2001, and the transition that bolted his music in a new direction:

"I had lost complete contact with everyone. I was letting myself out of the house through the front window- I spent 2 weeks in the inpatient mental ward, which is essentially a glorified prison. They ran every test and practice they could, from speaking and personality tests all the way to Rorschach diagrams. I was close to having ECT done, but they couldn't find a big enough excuse, and thus just stuck me on anti-psychotic medication while I still was coming down off a massive binge of psychedelics"




"Echo Us was born under peculiar circumstances, and it's time to let the cat out of the bag after almost 15 years of silence", say's Ethan




Earlier in 2014 Echo Us signed a worldwide deal with Germany's Dust On The Tracks Records for the release of its forth full-length album, II:XII, À Priori Memoriaé. The album is now available on digipak through SPV, and worldwide partners. A Priori Memoriae is the last in a trilogy series started with 2009's The Tide Decides, and as such, represents the close of a journey through some of the strangest and most beautiful music produced by the former Greyhaven guitarist and composer.




II:XII, À Priori Memoriaé continues the Echo Us tradition of combining disparate musical elements seldom seen, from rapid-fire instrumental bravado and developments set apart by choral arrangements, concert harp and woodwinds. Dust On The Tracks writes about the release:




"It is somehow a return to the concept albums that dominated the progressive rock of the 1970s- the album is one the best progressive rock albums of the century. Such a production made up of wonderful melodies, clever dramaturgy and compelling dynamics, is something that even the top of the class Mike Oldfield was not able to achieve through decades of work, including after his album "Ommadawn".




Again, the vocals of GRAMMY-nominee Henta take center stage in the videoclip for "Nightlight" On the 18th of September an all-new video for the cut "Chrysalis" will become available as well.
