What the press are saying:
“Formidable proficiency” – Arctic Drones
“Has to be seen to be believed” – Fecking Bahamas
“Quite fascinating…explodes and expands like fuel in a combustion chamber” – Echoes & Dust
Brighton math-prog trio POLY-MATH are pleased to announce a run of UK headline tour dates commencing at the Old Blue Last in London in March and running through into early April culminating in a Leeds date at Wharf Chambers.
Bass player Joe Branton comments: “We’re going to tour everything from our new record ‘Melencolia’ plus a two part b-side that we couldn’t fit on there! We’re not quite sure how yet, as sometimes there are 2 drum kits and 58 guitars at once…but we’ll figure it out and get back to you!”
The band will release their new mini-album ‘Melencolia’ on the 8th April 2016 via Superstar Destroyer Records and fans can preorder the record now on CD, vinyl or digital download from HERE.
You can get a taster of the new record on lead single ‘Ekerot’ which can be streamed on soundcloud here and is also available for free download from the Superstar Destroyer store HERE.
After a slew of successful singles and shows across the UK and Europe in 2015, Poly-Math emerged earlier last year from the studio with their gargantuan EP ‘Reptiles’. The band spent one week with producer/engineer Lee McMahon (And So I Watch You From Afar, Dry The River) crafting their off-kilter jams into six superb tracks that would even send Omar Rodriguez Lopez himself into a cold sweat.
The new record is the logical progression from this earlier work; grander, more powerful, deeper and wider in scope – it’s a record that shows Poly-Math for what they truly are; a groundbreaking and experimental band who eat boundaries for breakfast.
