Independent prog-metal band Arch Echo debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘To The Moon‘ Thursday. The fully instrumental song is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming EP Story I, which is scheduled for release Oct. 2. Its release will come less than a year after the release of the band’s most recent studio recording, You Won’t Believe What Happens Next! The band released its self-titled debut album in 2016.
Arch Echo’s new video features its members — Richie Martinez (drums), Joe Calderone (bass), Joey Izzo (keyboards), Adam Rafowitz (guitar), and Adam Bentley (guitar) performing the song against a tunnel-like backdrop from various angles. The song’s arrangement immediately lends itself to comparisons to works from Dream Theater. Comparisons are also possible to fellow up-and-coming prog metal outfit The Dead Centuries and to the veteran prog-metal band Scale The Summit.
The single and video’s debut comes more than two months after the band debuted the video for its then latest single, ‘Stella.’
Izzo talked about the arrangement featured in ‘To The Moon’ during a recent interview.
“To the Moon is contagiously uplifting and a really fun sonic journey. The groovy part in the middle is a bit of a new adventure for us and then it ends with a huge keyboard solo that was a ton of fun to make. I’m really happy with how this one turned out!”
The track listing for Story I is noted below.
