In a world as transient as music, the Asheboro, NC group Kindler focus on the creation of lasting moments with their Rock, Experimental, and Progressive songs. Consisting of brothers Nick and Stephen Wiley (formerly of Wake of Redemption) and Cameron Fitzpatrick (of TITAN, We Are Masked) they came together with a desire to create something powerful.
Today, Kindler is thrilled to unveil their debut single, "Light and Ash" off their brand new album, Cosmic Revelations, which will be released on March 11, 2016. The band partnered with Echoes and Dust who coined premiered the single and had this to say about the album: "satisfying on an instrumental, musical, and technical level, but it also is well arranges, and a listen from bow to stern feels like a true journey."
Coming off their successful EP, Afterglow, the threesome are ready to make the next step as a band. Similar to Afterglow, Kindler have self-engineered their forthcoming record which was recorded at The Fidelitorium, mixed at The Forest Moon of Endor and mastered by Bob Katz at Digital Domain. The band's bassist, Cameron Fitzpatrick engineered and mixed all eleven tracks. He expands:
"While we self-engineered both Cosmic Revelations and our EP, Afterglow, this album comes from a slightly different place than the EP. When we recorded Afterglow, we had a lot of concrete ideas about our music and our identity as a band and the material reflected that certainly. The music on the album, Cosmic Revelations, however, is punctuated by what we can an 'ominous question mark.' Things change, life is unpredictable, and very little remains certain, and these themes are present in nearly every song on the album."
