fine constant woven in light

Madison, Wisconsin’s The Fine Constant are without a doubt an archetype of the tech-worshiping prog metal scene that has come into prominence of recent years. The young instrumental trio of Sarah Longfield (guitar), Steve Meyer (drums), and Steve-O Wilkes (guitar) conjure the jazz-infused percussive guitar work of Animals as Leaders, the picturesque soundscapes of Scale the Summit, and the playfully ethereal melodies of guitar virtuoso Plini to create an all-encompassing sound of modern kaleidoscopic musicianship. The band’s new record Woven in Light — which drops this Friday, April 10th — continues in this tradition of experimental know-how with a more finely-tuned approach to songwriting that bleeds together passages of spacey electronics and intertwining guitar melodies. We’re excited to present the album’s official unveiling this week as the band prepares its release and supporting tour, with a full album stream available after the jump.

You can purchase Woven in Light in physical format through Storenvy and digitally through iTunes and Bandcamp. If you like what you hear, you can catch The Fine Constant touring alongside psych rockers Maid Myriad for the Heavy Blog sponsored Woven in Haste tour! Check out the dates below:
