Tommy Rogers (aka Thomas Giles), lead vocalist, keyboardist and founding member of the award-winning North Carolina progressive rock band Between The Buried and Me will release his debut solo album 'Pulse' on February 1st, 2011 via Metal Blade Records. The versatile front man and multi-instrumentalist not only self-produced the record, but also arranged, composed, and played all the instruments on the recording.
Recorded with Jamie King at The Basement Studios in Winston-Sales, NC, Pulse is a challenging rock record designed so that the parts build up to a larger, cinematic-like structure were everything from production to arrangements to lyrics to album art is carefully crafted towards a unified purpose. Testing the limits of what he can do naturally with his voice, Rogers' strikingly beautiful falsetto and dynamic range conjures tales of anxiety, collapse, end-times, and strength against swelling, heart-lifting arrangements and pristine backdrops of ambient loops, digital burbles, analog hiss, and woozy drones. Exploring combinations of the outré genres of both post-rock and glitch, the music's emotionally resonant yet textural sounds draw reference to artists such as Radiohead, Bjork, the Verve, Beck, Steorolab, and Spiritualized, balancing both rock and electronic impulses.

Amazing stuff. Fans of the melodic attributes of BTBAM will be right at home. Not to mention he's working on a follow-up right now.Published 17 months ago by Cody Kinsey
