SOUNDSCAPE Premieres “Paradox”
November 7, 2018, 11 days ago
The Connecticut-based prog outfit Soundscape recently announced the release of a second new single “Paradox” on Friday, November 9th. Fans of the band’s late ‘90s albums Discovery and Grave New World will appreciate the obvious return to a prog-rock sound on Paradox.
“Premiering the single with a video on BraveWords is a great opportunity for us to get the song heard and reach new fans,” says guitarist Todd Rose. “As an independent prog-rock band, it’s tough to get anyone’s attention.” This is especially true for a band that is essentially a side-project for the band’s leader Rob Thorne (Sacred Oath) and drummer Lou Caldarola (Kicksville) with no immediate plans for performing live.
Having reformed in 2017 after a near-20 year hiatus, Thorne (vocals), Caldarola, Rose, and Scott Waite (bass), have been writing and recording new material on-and-off these past 18 months. They released a first single “Insatiable” back on April 13th on Thorne’s Angel Thorne Music label (SRGILS/Caroline/Universal/eOne). Both are available worldwide on all online digital formats including Spotify, You Tube, Google Play, and Apple Music.
“I like lyric videos because the words are an important part of the whole picture,” says Thorne, who has been producing the Soundscape recordings in the downtime from his more traditional metal gig. “There are so many things happening at all times in Soundscape, including some viewpoint that I’m trying to get off my chest. I also love the opportunity to play keyboards again and work in a more progressive genre with these fantastic musicians.”
