TRIOSCAPES NEWS


TRIOSCAPES prepare for tour with SCALE THE SUMMIT; release "Curse of the Nines" live performance video!
iTunes top 10 charting jazz album, "Separate Realities", is available now

After having performed only a handful of shows, Trioscapes are finally taking their show on the road with fellow instrumental metal aficionados, Scale the Summit. The seven-day trek will begin on September 15th in Dayton, OH and wraps up in Greensboro, NC. This will be an event not to be missed as Dan Briggs finds time to gig with Trioscapes after Between the Buried and Me's appearance on The Summer Slaughter Tour and before BTBAM leaves for their next tour in Europe.

Dan Briggs adds: "We're excited to finally be taking Trioscapes on tour, albeit a short one. For those who haven't seen a full set yet, expect some tunes off the record mixed with some improvisations. Come talk to us afterwards about 1960s international psychadelic pop music and R. Kelly."

Fans can now see a live performance of the song "Curse of the Ninth" on metalblade.com/trioscapes. The video exemplifies the band's immense talent and creativity and is a must-see for anyone remotely interested in all things progressive.

"Prog dorks like us are in for a real treat. It's jazzy, it's fusiony, it's technical, it's catchy…It's barely metal at all, but boy is it awesome." MetalSucks.net

Bassist Dan Briggs offers the following comment: "Thanks to everyone who checked out "Separate Realities" in its first week of being available, and to everyone at Metal Blade Records. Somehow they were able to trick people into thinking this is a jazz record! Stay weird friends."

Trioscapes started in the summer of 2011 when bassist Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me) contacted Walter Fancourt (tenor saxophone/flute) and Matt Lynch (drums) about working up a rendition of the Mahavishnu Orchestra classic "Celestial Terrestrial Commuters". The group also messed around with a few original ideas with the intent of playing a one-off live show. However, after rehearsing the material and playing the show, the group decided the music was so demanding and fun to perform that there should be more of a future for the project. A few more songs were written near the end of the summer and a full length album was recorded the first week of October with Jamie King in Winston-Salem, NC. Trioscapes combines elements of 70s fusion with progressive rock, dark syncopated grooves, a flare for the psychedelic, and an unabashed love for both quirky Zappa-ish melodies and thunderous abrasive trade-off lines.

Trioscapes is also currently working on live dates for June, July and September. For the most up to date information, "like" Trioscapes on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/trioscapes.



Trioscapes premieres title track from "Separate Realities" on SputnikMusic.com!
The Dan Briggs from BTBAM-lead project offers a hefty helping of progressive music

The title track from the debut offering from Trioscapes, Separate Realities, will be debuting today on highly popular music destination Sputnikmusic.com. Separate Realities is an eleven-and-a-half minute cut that highlights many of the elements the progressive trio has to offer. It also exemplifies how it's possible to sound "heavy" without the use of a customary electric guitar. Through bass guitar, saxophone, and drums (and a handful of other instruments), Trioscapes manages to weave their way through multiple genres, moods, and sound scapes all while playing music as relentlessly technical as it is catchy. Listen to the title track now HERE. Sputnikmusic is a premier source for music reviews, news, and features spanning indie, metal, and punk.

YES! Weekly, the Greensboro, NC entertainment magazine, just named Dan Briggs the region's best bassist and Trioscapes the best new band. YES! praises Briggs' work: "his marathon bass runs for the progressive death metal quintet [BTBAM] are well noted, Briggs' work with the newly formed Trioscapes to this point is equally impressive. The abrupt time signature changes remain, but his style in the fiery jazz-fusion trio recalls Jonas Hellborg considered cadences in the Mahavishnu Orchestra mixed with a little bit of Bill Laswell fuzz bass."

A track from Separate Realities can be heard and the album can be pre-ordered now at http://www.metalblade.com/trioscapes. Separate Realities will be available May 8th in North America and May 7th in Europe.
