The Existential Gentlemen is the brainchild of Erich Zann and Kris kHz. Conceived in 2008, it began as a musical project between Erich and Kris, who would send files over the internet to write songs in a collaborative effort. When Erich moved back to his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2009, the two added close friend Michael James to the fold and worked to transform the project into a full band. However, it wasn’t until 2013 that the vision was fully realized, when a chance meeting between Kris and Jonathan Keilback meant that the band had completed its lineup, and The Existential Gentlemen was ready to take the stage.
Between November 2013 and March 2014, the band recorded its debut EP, a 6-track offering titled “Ethos,” and released it on May 17, 2014. In conjunction with the release of Ethos, the band premiered a music video for the track “Devil In The White City” on August 2.
As of January 2015, the band has commenced writing and recording their next 6 songs, to be released on the forthcoming sequel, “Pathos.”
