Exclusive: Intervals Premiere New Song, "Ephemeral"
Canadian/US progressive metallers and former instrumentalists Intervals have announced the addition of a vocalist, Mike Semesky, who previously sang on the debut album from UK metallers The Haarp Machine. The band have also teamed with Revolver to stream their vocal debut, the new single "Ephemeral." Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.
“I'm extremely happy to announce that I am the singer of Intervals," Semesky comments. "I joined the band on bass in early 2013, but after writing and experimenting with vocals over demos of the band's new material, the four of us knew that that was the direction we were meant to go. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a talented group of musicians and I'm extremely proud of the album we all worked so hard on. We can't wait for you all to hear it!”
We're incredibly excited and proud to announce Mike as the band's singer," guitarist and primary writer Aaron Marshall says. "Intervals has always been about open minded, forward thinking, progressive music with no boundaries. It's also been about staying true to the art we feel compelled to make, and we couldn't be happier with the dynamic Mike brings to the music. For those who remember, the band put out a feeler for a vocalist with the release of The Space Between, but in lieu of finding the right candidate, we decided to move forward with our initial intent: Make music. Mike joined the band as our bass player, but after only a few weeks of touring, it was apparent that this was the chemistry we were after all along. The human voice is an instrument and from our perspective, we are by definition, still an 'instrumental' band, now with added dimension and perspective. The band still retains its identity in guitar driven, progressive rock/metal and there's something on this record for everyone. We couldn't be more thankful for the support you have all shown us over the past few years and we hope you continue to follow along on this journey we share. This release is our proudest musical accomplishment to date and we can't wait for everyone to hear it!”
