POLYPHIA to Release Debut Album “Muse” on September 2nd


Make no mistake about it, progressive rock and metal is going through an exciting transition. Beyond the stage of genre-confining mediocrity, new hybrid forms are emerging, fusing prog rock’s technicality and musicianship with the ear-catching infectiousness of pop and jazz fusion.

Newest on the scene are the wunderkinds that make up Polyphia. All aged 20-21, the Texan instrumental outfit are ready to show the world their debut full-length, Muse. Equally inspired by guitar wizards Guthrie Govan and Rick Graham, and the pop sensibility of the R&B/rap world, Muse is a 44 minute ride full of groove, ear-teasing riffs and melodies and blindsiding musical brilliance. Who needs vocals?

Polyphia are a band fast on the rise. Backed by an impressive fanbase who crowdfunded the album, the group are set to undertake their first two tours in the USA – first with prog metal stars Monuments and latterly with Intervals and The Contortionist.

Featuring members of Intervals, Chelsea Grin, CHON and more, Muse was produced by Nick Sampson (Born of Osiris, I am Abomination, In Fear and Faith) at 37 studios.
