TOUR TEASER: youtube.com/Polyphia
The band is currently touring in support of their stunning sophomore album, Renaissance, which is out now and can be heard in full via youtube.com/Polyphia. The stream also includes music videos for "Nightmare", "Euphoria" and "Crush", which have already garnered nearly four million views combined.
Renaissance is available via polyphia.merchnow.com and through digital retailers such as iTunes. The first pressing of vinyl for Renaissance is limited to 1000, with two color variants: 500 of black with white splatter [sold out] and 500 of white with black splatter.
The album was recorded with Nick Sampson (Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men) who co-produced it with Polyphia guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage. Renaissance introduced a new conceptual and artistic direction for the trio's sound, vibe and visual aesthetic, that sees the band embracing their eclectic musical tastes (which include EDM, hip hop, pop and classical music) to create their own innovative blend of technical, yet melodic instrumental arrangements.
Polyphia is also currently writing for a new EP that they will release in 2017, which will take on a very different direction from all previous releases, with guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage taking creative lead on the project as both artists and producers.
Renaissance was released on March 11 and has sold over 11k copies to date. It is the follow up to Muse, the band’s debut full-length, which has sold over 13k copies to date and landed on several Billboard Charts including: No. 5 on Internet Albums, No. 6 on Hard Rock Albums, No. 13 on Independent Albums, No. 22 on Top Rock Albums, No. 71 on Top Current Albums, and No. 76 on Top 200. Through Muse, the band also found early supporters in the likes of Dunlop, Ibanez and Guitar World.
Polyphia is comprised of Tim Henson (guitar), Scott LePage (guitar) and Clay Gober (bass).
