MAID MYRIAD: Six-Week Co-Headlining Woven In Haste Tour With The Fine Constant Begins This Week – Earsplit Compound

Akron, Ohio’s MAID MYRIAD will take their wildly infectious progressive/melodic post-hardcore tunes to American audiences everywhere on an extensive US tour this Thursday, April 9th, with a kickoff solo show in Cleveland. Directly following the solo one-off, the trio will sync up with progressive/instrumental metal trio, The Fine Constant, in Erie, Pennsylvania, beginning The Woven In Haste Tour 2015. The massive forty-one city, co-headlining run will encircle the entire country in a clockwise course for six weeks, with the final show taking place May 23rd, in MAID MYRIAD’s hometown.

The Woven In Haste Tour 2015 is presented by Heavy Blog Is Heavy, who issues of the trek, “We’re particularly proud to be sponsoring this tour, as it showcases two young, original and excellent bands. The Fine Constant are at the cutting edge of instrumental adventure prog, featuring wild runs into dreamy territories where guitar leads mesh with thoughts in crazy-sweet landscape. MAID MYRIAD convey a different vision of progressive music, tempering it with amazing alternative vocals and an overall darker sensibility. Both recent albums by the bands, Woven In Light and With Haste On Its Breath respectively are a tour de force of what aspiring musicians can accomplish.”

In an attempt to interact with as many fans as possible, MAID MYRIAD is available for interviews, live coverage, one-off and/or acoustic shows, in-store sessions and other chance performances and escapades as time allows throughout the entire tour.

MAID MYRIAD continues to support their dynamic With Haste On Its Breath debut album, released through the partially band-owned Nefarious Industries, which was released in October 2014. The album is available in a six-panel digipak CD and via a name-your-price download RIGHT HERE.

One of the most vibrant progressive rock/post-hardcore albums of last year, the hour-long With Haste On Its Breath was recorded in Akron, Ohio and Keyport, New Jersey, produced and engineered by guitarist Jeff Klemm at Free Truman Productions, and mixed and mastered by Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam, etc.). As the record infected the masses, Ohio.com added MAID MYRIAD to their best of 2014 lists, and MetalSucks issued of With Haste On Its Breath, “its massive, melodic, introspective, and tortured, like a wonderful dream that quickly metamorphasizes into the kind of nightmare that continues to rattle and haunt you even after you awaken, stuck to your psyche like gum to the bottom of a shoe…” The Akron Beacon Journal hailed, “MAID MYRIAD, which calls its music ‘kaleidoscope rock’ thankfully digs deeper and further back into the ’90s recalling the intricate, herky-jerky dynamics and start-stop riffs of bands such as Sunny Day Real Estate and At the Drive-In and heavier contemporary proggy bands such as Tool and The Mars Volta, minus the 10-minute songs.” American Aftermath boasts, “The band combines an array of influences, including progressive rock and 90’s post-hardcore/emo, into a dynamic and emotional display of alternative rock mastery… Jeff Klemm’s near angelic vocals are sure to be stuck in your head all day. In fact, we guarantee that.” The Cleveland Scene made MAID MYRIAD their Band Of The Week, stating, “…the songs stay true to ‘kaleidoscope rock,’ the term the band has used to describe its neo-progressive rock. Heavily textured songs such as ‘Camera Eye’ and ‘Dance by the Moonlight’ have elements of Mars Volta. But the group slows things down for the simmering ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ and ‘Waiting for December,’ showing it can capably change gears.”

MAID MYRIAD Announces Massive Co-Headlining Woven In Haste Tour With The Fine Constant – Earsplit Compound

Maid Myriad

Ohio’s progressive/melodic post-hardcore trio, MAID MYRIAD, has confirmed a massive six-week US tour for most of April and May, co-headlining the entire nearly forty-city run with Madison, Wisconsin progressive/instrumental metal trio, The Fine Constant.

The Woven In Haste Tour 2015 begins on April 9th, as both bands kick things off with shows in their respective hometowns. The next night, the bands rendezvous in Erie, Pennsylvania for the first show together, and then wind through the entire country together through May 23rd, closing down in MAID MYRIAD’s home of Akron. The trek is presented by Heavy Blog Is Heavy, who issues of the tour, “We’re particularly proud to be sponsoring this tour, as it showcases two young, original and excellent bands. The Fine Constant are at the cutting edge of instrumental adventure prog, featuring wild runs into dreamy territories where guitar leads mesh with thoughts in crazy-sweet landscape.

Both recent albums by the bands, Woven In Light and With Haste On Its Breath respectively are a tour de force of what aspiring musicians can accomplish.”

MAID MYRIAD is fully available for interviews of all varieties preceding the tour, in addition to in-person on the trek. The band is also available for local performances, acoustic shows, in-store sessions and other random adventures as time allows on the tour.

In October, MAID MYRIAD released their debut album, With Haste On Its Breath, through Nefarious Industries, the DIY label co-operated by the band’s drummer, Greg Meisenberg. Unveiling one of the most dynamic and well-executed progressive rock/post-hardcore albums of the year, the hour-long opus was recorded in Akron, Ohio and Keyport, New Jersey, produced and engineered by guitarist Jeff Klemm at Free Truman Productions, and mixed and mastered by Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam, etc.).

OPUL: The Lightness of Being – Interview with Osprey Music Magazine

Lindsay O’Connor picks Matt Lupo’s brain about his latest solo effort, Levels:

Upon hearing the opening refrain on Matt Lupo’s Levels, I experienced immediate relief of all burdens—those most apparent, as well as ones I didn’t even know I had.

It’s likely because the music on Levels simply transcends; its aural atmosphere frees. And it’s also likely because Matt Lupo, guitarist of East of the Wall, masterfully created the EP’s sonic landscape with pitch-perfect, devastatingly sweet vocals and insightful songwriting. As a result, Levels may stand as his most profound work to date.

Head over to Osprey Music Magazine for the complete interview.
