Based in Chicago, ALAYA stands apart from many of today’s artists, fusing punishing technical rhythm with a genre defying soulful, melodic style.
Comments Basick CEO Nathan ‘Barley’ Phillips, “One of the best things about this job is discovering hidden talent that you know will immediately resonate with open minded music fans worldwide. Alaya are one of the most exciting and forward-thinking bands I’ve come across, showcasing incredible levels of musicianship and as a team, we’re genuinely excited to be bringing you their debut album next year.”
Vocalist/Guitarist Evan Graham Dunn adds, “It’s surreal – signing to a label that supports bands I’ve been a fan of for some time. Uneven Structure especially has been in my deck since “8” was released. As a band, we’ve waited for our entire career for someone to give us this chance, and we’re going to do everything we can to make the most of it. We can’t wait to hit the ground running and continue to work our collective asses off knowing now that Basick Records has got our back.”
Alongside the announcement, the band and label today released a video for their stunning track, ‘Inside’, destined to be the opening track on ALAYA’S forthcoming debut album, ‘Thrones‘, scheduled for release via Basick Records in 2013.
ALAYA are Evan Graham Dunn (Vocals/Guitar), David Jacob Robison (Drums), Michael Brandt Rinkenberger (Bass/Vocals). Find out more about the band in their blog interview over at Basick Records.
