In a world as transient as music, the Asheboro, NC group Kindler focus on the creation of lasting moments with their rock, experimental, and progressive songs. Consisting of brothers Nick and Stephen Wiley (formerly of Wake of Redemption) and Cameron Fitzpatrick (of TITAN, We Are Masked) they came together with a desire to create something powerful.
Today, Kindler is thrilled to unveil their brand new album, Cosmic Revelations, which will be released on March 11, 2016. Coming off their successful EP, Afterglow, the threesome are ready to make the next step as a band. Similar to Afterglow, Kindler have self-engineered their forthcoming record which was recorded at The Fidelitorium, mixed at The Forest Moon of Endor and mastered by Bob Katz at Digital Domain. The band’s bassist, Cameron Fitzpatrick engineered and mixed all eleven tracks. He expands:
“While we self-engineered both Cosmic Revelations and our EP, Afterglow, this album comes from a slightly different place than the EP. When we recorded Afterglow, we had a lot of concrete ideas about our music and our identity as a band and the material reflected that certainly. The music on the album, Cosmic Revelations, however, is punctuated by what we can an ‘ominous question mark.’ Things change, life is unpredictable, and very little remains certain, and these themes are present in nearly every song on the album.”
With their forthcoming release, fans can expect a sound entirely of their own, they pay homage to the symphonic ambition in Yes, emotional release of Isis, raw power of Mastodon, rhythmic complexity of Tool, melodicism of Fair to Midland and Karnivool, and the intensity and tonal experimentation of Opeth. Their efforts have produced songs that are timeless pieces, both intellectual and emotional, accessible and complex, grandiose and personal. Fans can be on the lookout for a single soon!
