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.

Story I track list

1. To The Moon – 4:13

2. Strut – 4:32

3. Leonessa – 5:02

4. Measure of a Life – 7:15

The Dead Centuries debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new song ‘Crystal Summer‘ Friday.  The instrumental song features a guest appearance by Intervals guitarist Jacob Umansky.  The video’s premiere comes more than two months after the band debuted the video for its then most recent single ‘Pop A Soda.’

The video for ‘Crystal Summer’ finds the members of The Dead Centuries alongside Umansky in various outdoor settings as they perform the new single.  There are shots at waterfronts, along cityscapes, and even a sunset.

As with the arrangement featured in ‘Pop A Soda,’ the arrangement at the center of ‘Crystal Summer’ features an approach and sound that will appeal to fans of bands, such as Animals As Leaders, Periphery, and Scale The Summit.

The band discussed the song and its video in a collective statement.

“The idea behind ‘Crystal Summer’ was to release a track that has an upbeat, summer vibe (hence the name) that is in line with what we’ve done with our previous single “Pop A Soda,” the statement reads. “We also shot a guitar playthrough video to add a visual element to the song, and our goal was to invoke feelings of fun, relaxation, and summertime.”

The Dead Centuries Debuts ‘Pop A Soda’ Video

Independent rock band The Dead Centuries debuted the video for its latest single this month.

The band debuted the video for its single ‘Pop A Soda‘ June 10.  The instrumental song’s arrangement is what many might call “math metal,” lending itself to comparisons to works from the likes of Periphery, Scale The Summit and Intervals.  It features a guest appearance by Intervals bassist Jacob Umansky.

The band addressed bringing Umansky on board for the song and about the song in general in a collective statement.

“We’re extremely excited to release this track as we feel it marks a big step forward in terms of songwriting, composition, playing, and production,” the statement reads.  We think the sonic depth in “Pop A Soda” is more interesting, ear-catching, and rewarding than previous efforts from the band, and we think listeners will love the caliber of this track. The inclusion of Jacob Umansky (Intervals/JIA) on bass brings another element to the track that helped us get closer to our vision.”

‘Pop A Soda’ is available to stream and download at Spotify, Apple Music and The Dead Centuries’ official bandcamp page.
