SET AND SETTING
Prepare to Release Tabula Rasa On October 12
Drops First Track, Ecdysis
SET AND SETTING are a young band from St. Petersburg, Florida who merge instrumental rock with a thick metallic edgeand elements of drone and ambient music.
The result is a captivating wordless genre amalgam“ Decibel Magazine raved and Brooklyn Vegan defined their sound as "metallic chug to trippy psychedelia to soaring post-rock beauty... like Russian Circles teaming with early Pink Floyd“.
Since their debut album Equanimity in 2013, "the quartet has been very active throughout theunderground and extreme music scenes in the U.S. and Canada.
In 2014 SET AND SETTING released their second album A Vivid Memory via Prosthetic Records and continued to tour internationally and locally with bands such as Mouth of the Architect, EyeHateGod, Inter Arma and Kayo Dot throughout 2015.
2016 brought a tough year of writing and recording while battling injuries within the band limiting live performances.
In 2017 SET AND SETTING releasedtheirthird full-length album Reflectionless and now SET AND SETTING are now returning with their 4th album Tabula Rasa, the band's heaviest album to date and their debut on Pelagic Records.
The band comment 'When we were writing this album, we had a new lineup and felt a new energy. We named this song Ecdysis because it felt like we we were shedding old skin and pushing new boundaries we haven't reached yet.’
'We purposely tried to extend the boundaries of our sound by adding more extreme metal and punk influences all while still sounding like ourselves“ guitarist Shane Handall comments.
The album was recorded and mixed during 10 straight days in Miami
