Reimagining The Contortionist At Download With Robby Baca
20th June 2017, 10:52
Posted by Tristan

The nature of progressive music is to challenge the musical apartheid. Thriving on creativity, The Contortionist are a band like no other. Enlisting the vocal stylings of one Michael Lessard, the band made a radical departure from their previous offering that was Intrinsic in the form of 2014’s Language. Earning critical acclaim from across the board with fans alike, it sparked what could well be a paradigm shift for the modern age of Progressive Metal. Having unveiled their latest single “Reimagined” to come off September’s forthcoming album Clairvoyant the band have once again rewritten the rules.

Hard to believe that we are now six months into the year of 2017. Thus far we’ve had the great orange tango monster up to his usual tricks once more, a divided English parliament that has called for a snap election and far more importantly some brilliant releases. Yet as we hit the halfway mark its also indicative of yet another mainstay of the year, Download Festival 2017.

An Interview With : Michael Lessard (The Contortionist)
16th March 2016, 19:30

Reliant on both intuition and assessment we as a species endure the constant battle of nature versus nurture. On the one hand it is arguable that our behavioural patterns exhibit evidence of cognitive learning through the way that we are raised. However on the other hand there is the argument that our upbringing is inconsequential and that we are in fact reliant on instinct. Fascinated by these philosophical queries we spoke to The Contortionist vocalist Michael Lessard regarding their phenomenal album Language, its fruition and ultimately the very near future where we have only just seen the beginning of the bands parable.

Once again we are plagued to the greedy maw of London’s venues with a particularly early start time at London’s Koko tonight to ensure that Club NME can still go ahead… However before that we embark on a journey of the metaphysical in both sound and spirit. Joined by Nordic Giants and The Contortionist, Tesseract will take to a sold out Koko’s stage later this evening to reveal just what makes this band absolutely exceptional.
