Ascending to Avalon / Press

“This week, Ascending to Avalon, a local band on the Mohawk Bomb label played some tracks for us. These guys are legit. Your faces will be melted by their skills.”

“Mohawk Bomb Records announced today the release of the debut EP from Ascending to Avalon, whose Soundgarden-meets-Minus-the-Bear throwback riff rock and psychedelic sensibility make them a prime choice to fans of Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes, Foo Fighters and Open Hand.”

“Most Improved Local Act Ascending to Avalon Their two-disc demo last September proved that Ascending to Avalon is something special. Eight months spent working and shopping their debut EP, Wake the Sleeping Sun, has given A2A’s music a tighter focus with a more even blend of riff, melody and color.”

“Mohawk Bomb Records Showcase: This new post-grunge quartet is sure to fly with fans of Open Hand, Foo Fighters and Led Zeppelin. Their song “Salvation” was featured on the No Lip Vol. 2 compilation.”

“Ex-signees of Mohawk Bomb Records, Palm Harbor's Ascending to Avalon blends '90s-like modern rock and grunge with proggy punk and jam to produce a catchy, highly polished sound. On the 2009 EP Wake the Sleeping Sun, the band's music soars in Foo Fighters/Incubus fashion, thanks to the acrobatic vocals of Ryen Gerson and the nimble guitarwork of Eric Bourne and Gerson. Drummer Lance Miller and bassist Brett Johnson round out the group. They just completed a new album, Behold the Wicked, that's available digitally, and they're working on getting "prettied-up limited edition physical ones in soonish." The album is trippier and more experimental than Wake the Sleeping Sun, yet deeper, darker, bluesier and punkier, too. Below, check out a song from Wake the Sleeping Sun.”
