Video footage of THE ERA OF — the Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based progressive rock quartet featuring CRYPTOPSY frontman Matt McGachy — performing on May 4 at L’Hémisphère Gauche in Montreal can be seen below.
THE ERA OF has made its entire debut album, “Pelican Beach”, available for free download at Bandcamp.com.
Comprised of members of established bands — including CRYPTOPSY, A TEXAS FUNERAL and DOWNLINE — THE ERA OF has been described as a combination of 30 SECONDS TO MARS, A PERFECT CIRCLE and RUSH. Matt states, “We have blended epic build-ups, soaring choruses and uplifting rock outs into our own eclectic style. From a lyrical standpoint, our album explores the impact of an apocalyptic disaster through the eyes of different inhabitants of the city of Pelican Beach.
“Although music is the driving force behind our creative process, THE ERA OF has expanded upon our narrative concept by writing a compilation of short stories to be released alongside the album. These stories were conceived in fonction of the length of the songs to enhance the listener’s experience.”
THE ERA OF is:
Matt McGachy – Vocals
Pavlo Haikalis – Guitar
Chris Brandel – Bass
MOS Mark-Olivier Spenard – Drums
