I'm honored and proud to welcome Ancient Sky to the Perpetual Motion Machine family. This relatively new Brooklyn-based band features members of Majority Rule, Ghastly City Sleep, Darkest Hour, Verse En Coma, and You Are The Drum, among others.
The band just completed recording their debut seven song full length at the Seaside Lounge Studio in Brooklyn and are handing it off to Paul Gold (Fucked Up, Animal Collective) for mastering. Describing the band, friend and engineer Mike Kutchmen says "Largely influenced by classic psychedelic rock, the band isn't afraid to visit bizarre and far-out worlds with unique sounds and structures that walk the line between fierce and subtle, and occasionally flirt with epic-ness. Guitarist/vocalist Brian Markham's words are unapologetic, introspective and honest, adding an earthly icing to their spacey cake."
Ancient Sky's self-titled full length is set to be released on LP and CD this summer on The Perpetual Motion Machine in the US and on Sons of Vesta Records in Europe. The band will be touring the US in August with select shows around NY throughout the summer. Additional details and sample tracks to follow soon.
In the meantime, preview some tracks from the band's demo on their myspace page:
