With a novel approach to the timing of releases, Austin-based instrumental act CHRONOLOGIST, instead of releasing one larger concept record, has decided to release four smaller EPs that will be released on each Solstice and Equinox day throughout 2019. The first release was EQUINOX I, out in March 2019. The second release, SOLSTICE I will be released upon the Summer solstice on Friday, June 21st.
Drummer Zach Sacco says of the new songs “Our goal with this EP was to capture the natural energy that summer brings. I’m excited to recreate that feeling each night and I’m pumped to see how they go over in a live environment.” The band plans to debut these songs live in Austin upon the EP release.
Chronologist is an instrumental progressive rock band comprised of guitarists Julian Gargiulo, Nick Broomhall, and Sacco. The group formed at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA in 2013 and began to make waves around the northeast with the release of an instrumental demo in 2014. After spending time touring and building their web presence, the group released their debut LP Cartographer in late 2016 and made the decision to relocate to Austin, TX from Boston, MA.
To focus on what each season truly meant to the band, each EP is being handled as separate recording projects and will be produced and engineered by the band themselves at their home base of the Machine Shop Recording Studio (Lamb of God, Clutch, Every Time I Die, Etc) with mixing duties being handled by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist, Scale the Summit, Etc) and mastering duties being handled by Machine himself (Lamb of God, Suicide Silence, Etc.). “This album really pushes the rock edge of our sound and I feel that we have really upped our production game from what we’ve done previously,” explains guitarist Julian Gargiulo.
