FREE DOWNLOAD ALERT! That's right! The guys in Vancouver, BC's comedic blenders of tech / prog / thrash / jazz metal EXPAIN (formerly known as The Almighty Excruciating Pain) have teamed up with SMNNEWS.com for an exclusive FREE DOWNLOAD of their new track 'Aggressions Progression' from their forthcoming debut album 'Just The Tip' set for official release on Tuesday, June 24th.
There’s something to be said about technology and its ability to bring musicians together and Vancouver’s Expain has Craigslist to thanks for its birth.
Mixing thrash with jazzier elements and everything in between, the band delivers music that’s energetic, diverse and thoughtful in every sense of the word. “Our music tends to be very melodic and we put a big emphasis on the songwriting, as well as the individual riffs,” says guitarist Eric Morrison.
The band’s debut album, ‘Just the Tip’, plays to its sense of humour, but also represents the beginning of a musical journey that’s not bound to stop or slow down any time soon. Writing about everything from overcoming adversity to partying hard, living in an ever-changing city and the state of today’s society as a whole, Expain has captured its true identity on record.
As Morrison explains, “We go through many different concepts on this album but I think throughout all of it there is an attempt to stay hopeful and make something positive out of difficult or unpleasant situations.”
