The World Premiere Of Edensong's "Beneath The Tide" Music Video With Performances From Break Of Reality, Edensong and New Beard -- Thursday, December 9th at 7 PM; Public Assembly at 70 N 6th St, Brooklyn, NY; Tickets $10 (adv from www.ticketweb.com), $13 (door), 21+
On Thursday, December 9th, enjoy a multimedia evening of three genre bending New York bands. Break of Reality headlines the show with their mind-blowing cello infused progressive rock, with supporting performances from orchestral rockers Edensong, and the eclectic indie/prog/pop madness of New Beard. Edensong's "Beneath The Tide" music video, directed by Nick Fiore, will be screened between musical sets. This is not a show to miss!
Break of Reality is a cello quartet gone mad. The band's sound is cinematic, subdued and heavy all at once. Their live audiences are equally diverse; fans of Led Zeppelin, Radiohead and Yo-Yo Ma are finally getting acquainted. In 2006, Break of Reality released an independent album, The Sound Between, which has sold over 24,000 copies in the United States and around the world, much to the band's amazement. The band has been touring in support of their recent album, Spectrum Of The Sky, released in the summer of 2009. The members of Break of Reality have been applauded for their "thunderous tone" and their "take no prisoner approach to cello playing" (Sacramento Bee Newspaper, June 2007). Their sound has been described as having "excitement, originality, and an undeniable intensity that louder, heavier bands only dream of. Break of Reality is going to win a Grammy someday. Bank on it." (Rochester City News, April 2007).
Edensong: Referred to as "a band to watch over the coming years... It almost frightens me where they're going from here" (Bill's Prog Blog, September 2010), Edensong recently released their half live, half studio album Echoes Of Edensong: From The Studio And Stage to rave reviews and early 'Best of 2010' lists. This, following the success of their debut album The Fruit Fallen (2008) and their unprecedented presence at many major progressive rock festivals of the past year: Three Rivers Progressive Rock Festival in Pittsburgh, PA, Progday in Chapel Hill, NC, and Convention Terra Incognita in Quebec City, QC helped to gain Edensong a loyal following among progressive rock enthusiasts. This show will mark the premiere of their new music video for "Beneath The Tide." For more information on Edensong, please visit the band's official website, MySpace page, or Facebook Fan Page. You can stream their entire catalog for free at the Edensong webstore: www.edensong.bandcamp.com.
New Beard is a new dynamic and innovative rock act based in New York and is the brother band of Edensong. After the formation of the group by Ben Wigler and Andrew Dunn (both formerly of the indie rock band Arizona), Tony Waldman and "Tuba Joe" Exley soon joined and the boys started work on their first album while playing a series of shows that included an opening performance for Dead Confederate at the illustrious Music Hall of Williamsburg. New Beard looks forward to sharing the stage with Break of Reality and Edensong and putting the final touches on their debut album.
