MAID MYRIAD: Debut Full-Length From Ohio Kaleidoscope Rock Act Out Today; Trio Makes Album “Name Your Price” Available – Earsplit Compound

Maid Myriad

Ohio’s mesmerizing progressive/alternative power trio, MAID MYRIAD, today officially releases their debut studio full-length, With Haste On Its Breath, and in addition to the CD version via Nefarious Industries, the trio has made the digital version available through a “name your price” purchase via Nefarious Industries as a token of public celebration of its availability.

Recorded in both 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.), With Haste On Its Breath brings out a solid hour of dazzling musicianship and powerful, dynamic vocals from the MAID MYRIAD clan. The album is bringing on praise from respected webzines such as MetalSucks, who issued, “…it’s 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,” in an early track premiere from the album, as did American Aftermath, who offers, “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.” Locally, the album is taking over, with mass acclaim from a plethora of newspapers and alt-weeklies across Ohio, including The Cleveland Scene who made MAID MYRIAD their Band Of The Week, publishing, “The band goes for the esoteric and atmospheric on its new album, With Haste on Its Breath. Klemm wails on the album opener ‘Encircled.’ Elsewhere, 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 guitarist/vocalist Jeff Klemm (ex-Via Lotus), drummer Greg Meisenberg (A Fucking Elephant) and bassist Mario Tonathy now proudly offer With Haste On Its Breath to the masses in a six-panel digipak CD and multiple low-priced merch options via the home of a bunch of big, dumb noise, Nefarious Industries, the independent label founded by members of MAID MYRIAD, A Fucking Elephant, El Drugstore and more. Additionally, the digital download by itself is now “name your price” direct through the label.

Following their recent record release show for With Haste On Its Breath, MAID MYRIAD will sporadically take to the streets with regional performances with friends abroad in the coming weeks and onward. Stand by for more live dates to be announced.

MAID MYRIAD: MetalSucks Releases New Single From With Haste On Its Breath; Debut Album From Ohio Kaleidoscope Rock Act Nears October Release – Earsplit Compound

Maid Myriad

Akron, Ohio-based kaleidoscope rock act, MAID MYRIAD, will release their mesmerizing debut full-length, With Haste On Its Breath, in less than two weeks, and today, the crew who runs MetalSucks’ online domain has premiered the album’s third track, “Be Careful What You Wish For.”

Slowly uncoiling, building from a gentle, theatrical intro into an explosive modern rock masterpiece by the end, “Be Careful What You Wish For” is just an example of MAID MYRIAD’s awesome dexterity displayed on the moving twelve-song With Haste On Its Breath. The trio fuses an endless array of genres into a unique, hook-strewn rock amalgam of their own, and on the album, creates an hour-long opus that is as beautiful as it is contagious. Alongside their exclusive stream of “Be Careful What You Wish For,” MetalSucks states the track, “might be described as ‘Coheed-esque’ — it’s 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. Little wonder we became so smitten with the song from the moment we heard it!”

With Haste On Its Breath will see a six-panel digipak CD and digital release October 7th via Nefarious Industries, the independent label founded by members of MAID MYRIAD, A Fucking Elephant, El Drugstore and more, and the home of a bunch of big, dumb noise.

Recorded in both Akron, Ohio, and Keyport, New Jersey, produced and engineered by guitarist Jeff 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.), the artwork and layout for With Haste On Its Breath was handled by Eric Nyffeler at Doe-Eyed (East Of The Wall, A Fucking Elephant).

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

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.
