New Terminus is an Atlanta-based rock band with high-powered guitar-driven melodies and stylistic pop sensibilities. The band’s influences vary from Built To Spill and Superchunk to the Pixies and Pinback. Combining captivating melodies, intricate lyrical stylings and driving rock music, New Terminus infuses each song with infectious energy.
Jonathan Sleep and Travis Navarra of New Terminus have known each for an undisclosed period of time, but it's been a while, which shows in the guitar interplay of their songs. Jon also sings.
A few moons ago, Dallas Peavy the drummer, desperate to be in as many bands as possible, joined them, not to be the drummer, but pretend to be the drummer in a movie. He did not find this satisfactory so he muscled his way into the role permanently (and tried to sing as well).
Finally the team (w/ founding bassist Jim Miller) adopted the moniker NEW TERMINUS, partially based on the original name of Atlanta, and released two EP's. The end of 2010 saw the departure of Jim. Supremely Cool bassist Billy Santana joined briefly in 2011 to write some songs and take part in recording for the debut full-length, RED GIANT.
Patrick Finn, of Texas Brit Pop and Black Sundays acclaim, now locks it down on bass and supreme backing vocals.
They are currently crafting the next batch of New Terminus songs. In the meantime, please enjoy the latest release, SUBTLE ASTRONAUT.
