Emerging out of Illinois, the group started after the demo album Access Denied was released in 2011 and soon gathered the rest of its members shortly after. The group implements various styles involving a progressive element surrounded by an ambient feel with a touch of distortion. The goal of the band is to relate a sense of empathy reaching deeper into the existence of what it means to be conscious. We all have certain experiences and music is one of the most profound ways of relating empathy. Programmable Animal intends to reach out to people that need some sort of outlet or anyone that enjoys our music. Music is to be shared and that is the most important part.
