Translation Loss Records signs GravitonSunday, February 27, 2011 11:31 AM PT / 3,593 views
Official press release: Translation Loss Records are extremely excited to announce the addition of Los Angeles’ Graviton to their roster. Graviton formed when Intronaut guitarist and vocalist, Sacha Dunable, approached the prog-metal duo National Sunday Law (Derek Donley and Darin Tambascio) about recording a few songs that didn’t quite fit with Intronaut. Fueled by pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) and a shared string theory fascination, the band quickly began collaborating on a diverse set of material that featured distinct musicianship, vocals and songwriting from each member. By incorporating synthesizers, organ, piano, drum machine, samples, lap steel and acoustic guitars as well as the standard heavy rock instrumentation, Graviton’S TL debut "Massless" proves to be a meticulously crafted masterpiece of ambient electronic fusion, shoegaze and melodic metal. Recorded by Graviton drummer Derek Donley just prior to Intronaut’s highly praised 2010 album Valley of Smoke, Massless is an album that reflects a remarkable time and place in minds of these three musicians. The new album will be available on April 26th. For more information on Graviton and a preview of tracks on “Massless”, visit their Facebook page.
