Apparently this month I’ve just been catching up on bands I really should have paid attention to months (or even years) ago. Most of my late discoveries happen to be in the realm of death metal (including Beyond Creation‘s exciting debut album I recently reviewed), but the Texan quintet Fair to Midland differ in their melodic prog rock leanings. Good stuff if you’re into bands like Dredg and Karnivool. In fact, they’ve recently headlined on a North American tour with Periphery and Scale The Summit, so you know you’re dealing with a forward-thinking group here.
You can see a video of their new single “Musical Chairs” above. Fair to Midland will release their fourth album Arrows and Anchors July 12th on eOne music, and it’s shaping up to be a good one.
