The Epilogues / Press

“The Epilogues are a do-it-yourself band, and always have been. A major label deal was within their reach, but it turned out that the cards weren’t dealt in their favor. However, the band took it in stride, taking their fate into their own hands. As a group, it seems they understand the importance of not wasting time. They’ve put a serious effort into producing a stellar album, and listeners’ time will not go to waste.”

“The album, as a whole, is a successful, quality work done by an act that cannot be compared to anyone. That is the goal of any band looking to make an impression and after listening to The Epilogues, an imprint remains... In a word: Impressive”

“Thank the heavens for unexpected surprises. The latest in what seems to be a monthly occurrence is the Denver band The Epilogues. On their sophomore full-length Cinematics the band makes a case that they may be the band to watch in 2013. If the enveloping and inviting album opener "The Shadow King," does not hook you, then perhaps the methodical and sweeping "Call Me a Mistake," will. From start to finish, Cinematics is accentuated by bursting guitars, thunderous drums and a rousing concoction of drama, swagger and tenacity.... From front to back, Cinematics as a whole has a visceral and guttural pull towards gravity that rivals their contemporaries. And it is that very trait that sets this Colorado band apart. Quite honestly, it doesn't get much better than this.”

"'Paradigm Shift' marks the point where we started getting national attention. Dealing with record labels and management for the first time radically changed everything that we thought we knew about the business," the Epilogues' Chris Heckman tells Rolling Stone. "It felt like we had to change everything, and we didn't have any control. "Paradigm Shift" is about the frustration associated with that change."

“For the past few years the band's been gaining recognition throughout the city and beyond, released two albums and are working on a third. And on top of winning Westword magazine's Best of the West competition this year — a massive battle of the bands involving many of Denver's finest musicians — they also played a set at the third annual Mile High Music Festival three weeks ago, a memorable milestone for a band that's already been getting a lot of buzz.”

“When I told a friend I’d be reviewing the Epilogues’ debut album for Scene, she caught me by surprise with her fawning: “It made me fall in love again… and I’ve never been in love…/…The Beautiful, The Terrifying is more like a post-breakup medicinal, good for any lover without a warm body to cling to.”

Erik Myers - Scene Magazine

“Paper Route was great last week at the Black Sheep, but the Nashville band was upstaged by locals the Epilogues, who put on an excellent show.../…it was the Epilogues who stole the night. Their energy was infectious. When they broke out with “King Arthur,” just about everyone was moving to the music.”

“The Epilogues are one of our Colorado bands that are making some huge waves across the country. They have been flying relatively under the radar for a couple of years, quietly plugging away and doing their thing. But in the past year, they’ve really stepped up their game and exploded onto the national scene. They are one of those working bands that are putting Colorado music on the map... Secondly, they put on a terrific show. Not only do they travel with their own lights, the band has achieved a chemistry that results in high energy antics that keep the crowd with them through the whole show. And lastly, they are just good people who love music. They don’t take themselves too seriously and they are huge supporters of their fellow musicians. Translation: Crowds, other musicians and their fans LOVE them.”

Greta Cornett - Bohemian Nights Society

“If you don't know about The Epilogues, you no longer have an excuse. The lyrics of "The Beautiful, The Terrifying" are surprisingly well crafted, bathed in a tidal wave of sound that includes layered vocals, soaring synths, clean guitar and an understated, yet highly effective rhythm section.”

Nick Scheidies - Colorado State Collegian

“When I told a friend I’d be reviewing the Epilogues’ debut album for Scene, she caught me by surprise with her fawning: “It made me fall in love again… and I’ve never been in love.” ”

“The Epilogues offered a slick performance of keyboard-laced, drum-based alternative dance rock that had viewers out of their seats and moving to the beat. Three polished old songs and an impressive new one left the crowd yearning for more from The Epilogues.”
