BTB&M Spinoff Trioscapes Signs With Metal Blade


Separate Realities
Between The Buried And Me spinoff band Trioscapes have signed a deal with Metal Blade.

The label will release the band’s new offering Separate Realities on May 8.

“Trioscapes started in the summer of 2011 when bassist Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me) contacted Walter Fancourt (tenor saxophone/flute) and Matt Lynch (drums) about working up a rendition of the Mahavishnu Orchestra classic ‘Celestial Terrestrial Commuters,’” a press release says.

“The group also messed around with a few original ideas with the intent of playing a one-off live show,” the release continues.

“However, after rehearsing the material and playing the show, the group decided the music was so demanding and fun to perform that there should be more of a future for the project. A few more songs were written near the end of the summer and a full length album was recorded the first week of October with Jamie King in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

“Trioscapes combines elements of ‘70s fusion with progressive rock, dark syncopated grooves, a flare for the psychedelic, and an unabashed love for both quirky Zappa-ish melodies and thunderous abrasive trade-off lines.

“Trioscapes currently has one show confirmed for this May to celebrate the release of the CD on Metal Blade Records. The 12-inch LP is also available via Dan Briggs‘s own Hogweed & Fugue Records. Both will be available for purchase at this show. More shows are currently being confirmed.”
