SKY EATS AIRPLANE
SKY EATS AIRPLANE (EQUAL VISION)
Sky Eats Airplane is going to give the music scene a run for its money. The stir they started causing months ago was enough to catch the attention of labels and media across the country.
Their current touring schedule is taking them to new levels, with each show they play gaining fans at an exponential rate-not to mention taking over memory space on iPod's and MP3 players left and right.
The buzz was loud enough to catch the attention of Equal Vision Records. Sky Eats Airplane explore the boundaries of a genre-on-the-rise, "hard-tronica", combining a mac-supported electronica background, alternative metal riffs, and accompanying guttural screams, resulting in what is sure to be one of the most eclectic live performances you can hope to witness.
SEA marries bombastic, jagged edged rock with cutting edge electronica beats and the result is freakin' cool.
This is not a generic product you will be able to find at the local supermarket; the band has kicked down the walls of conventional music and is plowing the field to create the foundation of a new genre that will surely be emulated by the next generation of forward thinking bands.
After self producing and releasing their debut album, titled Everything Perfect on the Wrong Day, as a two piece in 2006, the group expanded into a full 5 piece outfit - Lee Duck (guitar), Johno Erickson (bass), Zack Ordway (guitar), Kenny Schick (drums), and Jerry Roush (vocals).
Upon adding the final touches to the line up, they wasted no time on immediately starting to work on a second album- the result being a self titled full length to be released July 22nd, 2008.
Each member brings their own flair and personality to the music - creating a successful, yet still diverse, marriage of sound.
When asked what drives the band, Duck cites their passion for music, touring, and most importantly giving everything they've got to the fans who appreciate their alternative approach to a decades old genre.
The new album sticks to the same basic elements as the first, but the songwriting process has definitely evolved.
Duck explains, "The last record was written, musically, around the electronica where as, on the new record, the music is written and structured first.
I start programming the electronica after a song has been laid out. The advantage of doing it afterwards is that it allows us to add a lot more depth and detail than we could have ever imagined doing before.
It's like trying to multitask. You might accomplish both in the end, but you still would have done a better job with each if they were done separately.
It's a longer process this way, but it is really worth it in the end."
