Been having a lot of breakthroughs in the studio, it's about I time I share a few sneak peeks :) Adrenaline, brand new track off the upcoming sophomore album "Hate & Harmony" is currently open for vocal auditions.

Brand new single just released featuring the vocal talents Miss Lindsey Church. Be sure to pick up your copy here on Reverb or choose your format on Bandcamp. http://aclearmind.bandcamp.com http://www.facebook.com/themeasure Lyrics:
"I am a monster I'll make you wonder Whats underneath, behind the scenes Beg and plead, hold the key Lock the cage when you leave
Who am I? Divided inside You will never survive
When no ones looking I will take hold You don't need anyone I'm in control I'm your despair I'm everywhere I'm the mask that you wear
Who am I? Divided inside You will never survive
I will find you I will define you And I will wreck you of what you've become
Who am I? Divided inside You will never survive"

The Measure is working on his second Single to follow up to the successful launch of A Clear Mind, entitled "Pushing Limits" A track exploding with energy, thought, and emotion is perfectly titled, gives you the same thoughtful feeling you would expect from TOOL or NINE INCH NAILS. A soothing melody, grabs you from the get go backed by powerful guitars driving you through the motion, and powerful drum work establishes an epic feeling of determination and perseverance. Towards the climax of the song you are sucked in and zoned out by the visual and eerie whammy guitar taps followed by a complex ma thematic progression you would expect out of MESHUGGAH, or BATTLES.
The track should be finished by early of May 2011 and available exclusively to fans for a free download from ReverbNation and Facebook.
Thanks for being on the mailing list, we look forward to sharing this exciting track with you very soon.

The Measure is developing his first 2011 single "Even After" an explosive, tear jerking song about life after death. The first song of The Measure to incorporate piano that adds a soft and delicate yet powerful connotation to the song. The song sits just over 2:10 in duration but makes up for it with the instant catchy melodies and hooks.
Kiah (Adam Ingram) spent a few weeks absorbing ideas from two very different influences he felt compelled were destined to meet, post rock's well known "Explosions in the Sky" with industrial rock's renowned "Nine Inch Nails". There will be lyrics to this song performed by Lindsey Church of Reflection.
THE IDEA: is between two soul mates, one of which who has left this Earth years before expected and the lyrics are in first person of the one who is left behind. The overall feel sends a clash of a dark, dreary feeling while collaborating with positive lyrics of passion and certainty that the two lovers are never apart and will be together again, Even After one has left this plain of existence.
Kiah looks to have the final mix mastered and ready for distribution by the end of January 2011. He plans on dropping this song in every avenue of social networks, media sources, EPK's and will be submitted to local and online radio stations.
Thanks for all the love and support, be sure to catch your FREE copy of the track by signing up on The Measure's mailing list, or by joining The Measure street team here on ReverbNation.

THE MEASURE is currently finishing up A Clear Mind and getting ready for the debut release come this July.
As of now, I am currently hand selecting a variety of vocal styles and techniques to really had some fuel to this fire. I have several artists on board across the Pacific Northwest and if you come across this page, enjoy the experience, and want to collaborate ideas and throw some vox down, please feel free to write. I am looking for a second album filled with contributions throughout the country all bringing in new flavors and twists to this project. The final selected vocalists will see royalties for album sales.
I do ask that only serious inquiries are sent please. This music comes from the heart, and regardless, needs that conveyed through every track, no matter the vox style.
