Official press release: The Proselyte have been playing around Boston for five years, but recently managed an enormous sonic overhaul. The band's sound has truly come into their own with the upcoming LP, offering riffy swagger, bomb-string heaviness and massive multi-layered vocal harmonies. It's almost like Alice in Chains discovering the first two Baroness EP's, or maybe the Melvins covering the Beach Boys. They somehow manage to hit fresh, uncharted territory using familiar hallmarks of stoner metal, Seattle grunge and modern melodicism. The recording is warm, lush and as thunderous as the guitars will allow, but the crushing moments are woven through harmonious sun soaked vocal passages and used as a release, not a crutch. This could easily be the first sludge metal soundtrack for hitting the beach. Entitled "Sunshine", Proselyte's full-length will be out via Boston's TBD Records vinyl and digital formats in October. "Sunshine" was recorded at New Alliance in Cambridge, MA by drummer/vocalist, Alec Rodriguez and the band features guitarist/vocalist Nicolas Wolf from Phantom Glue. The line-up is rounded out by Bradford J. Macomber on Bass and Mitchell C. Belch on Guitar/vocals. For fans of: Torche, The Melvins, Mastodon, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains, Baroness www.Facebook.com/TheProselyte
