MAID MYRIAD to Debut Full-Length Album “With Haste on Its Breath” – Akron Beacon Journal

MAID MYRIAD [...] 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.” – Akron Beacon Journal


MAID MYRIAD Posts Opening Track From Debut Album Playing At American Aftermath; Preorders Posted + Mini-Tour Begins This Week – Earsplit Compound

Maid Myriad

In advance of their impending Nefarious Industries debut full-length, With Haste On Its Breath, Akron-based kaleidoscope rock act, MAID MYRIAD, will embark on a string of shows, today also releasing the opening track and multiple preorder packages for the album.

“Encircled” opens up With Haste On Its Breath with just enough of a furious rhythmic pulse to accent the finesse and boundless vocal delivery the versatile MAID MYRIAD trio courageously master on the album, encapsulating a wide view of some of the album’s incredibly infectious, hook-strewn characteristics. The track is now playing at American Aftermath who issues, “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,” adding on the track “Encircled” itself, “the track’s dream-like verses, driving riffs that close out the track and Jeff Klemm’s near angelic vocals are sure to be stuck in your head all day. In fact, we guarantee that.”

Listen to “Encircled” now at THIS LOCATION.

Preorders for With Haste On Its Breath have been posted, including three different bundle packages; CD, CD + T-Shirt, CD + two T-Shirts; each one includes a 17″ tour poster, stickers, and an instant download of the opening track, “Encircled”. Check it out HERE.

This Thursday, August 14th and Friday the 15th MAID MYRIAD — guitarist/vocalist Jeff Klemm, drummer Greg Meisenberg, and bassist Mario Tonathy — will perform in their home state of Ohio, in Cleveland and Kent, respectively, followed by a show in Clarksburg, West Virginia on the 16th. And amid other widespread tour actions to be booked in advance and through the release of With Haste On Its Breath, just days before its official street date of October 7th, MAID MYRIAD has confirmed a record release show in Kent, Ohio on Saturday, October 4th, at which the band will perform the entire new album. Jeff Klemm has also lined up an extensive string of solo acoustic gigs, where he displays alternate adaptations of ‘MYRIAD songs and additional material separate from the band’s catalog. The other side to his creative cerebral coin, his crooning acrobatic vocals and spiderweb fingerpicking acoustic guitar has earned his solo set such praise as “Sounds like if Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake went out on a full moon heartbreak bar crawl.” There will be a few more acoustic additions in the next two weeks.

Boasting a beautiful style of post-progressive/alternative/pop they like to refer to as kaleidoscope rock, MAID MYRIAD blends dynamically angst-fueled progressive riffs, delicate pin drop moments, and intense start/stop dynamics. The band’s debut full-length, With Haste On Its Breath brings on a dozen new songs radiating in nearly an hour of their most expansive and explosive material to date. Bursting with influences from a gamut of rock subgenres, one can hear elements of Sense Field, Sunny Day Real Estate, Dredg, Cave In, Tool and more all seamlessly honed and brought to vibrant life with a passionate, dynamic, clean vocal delivery, produced and engineered by Klemm at Free Truman Productions, and then mixed and mastered by Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam, etc.)

CoolDad Music: New Single from EASTERN ANCHORS, Split with ZERO FOR CONDUCT

“The Anchors‘ track, “Above Your Station,” rides a big, Bob Mouldian guitar riff and opens with the line, “Can’t catch a break to save your soul. Raise up your kids on rock ‘n roll.”; and the song does a good job of carrying the late 80s / early 90s indie rock torch ignited by the band’s previous LP. [...] Zero For Conduct‘s “Average Marks Make Shitty Sparks” bounces on top of the bassline provided by newest member J. Pat Holden (who joins drummer Joe Dingerdissen and guitarist Morgan Chen) and will be the New Brunswick band’s vinyl debut.” – CoolDad Music
