Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Allegaeon Cover Yes’ “Roundabout”

Allegaeon have released a cover of Yes’ “Roundabout.” You can stream that and check out a behind the scenes video below:

Riley McShane commented:

“We’re very excited to release our rendition of ‘Roundabout‘ by YES from their 1971 album ‘Fragile‘. We have always been huge fans of progressive rock and all the genres that were birthed from that era of music – in this cover we try to showcase not only those influences, but also how we as individual musicians have been impacted by the music of yesteryear and how that impact has helped us to develop our own styles of playing.

We tracked this single with our good friend and long-time engineer Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Denver, CO. Recording with Dave is always a treat, and this time we were fortunate enough to be joined in the studio by Metal Blade Records‘ Vince Edwards to document the experience with a hybrid, music video meets studio documentary film available for viewing here: https://youtu.be/coGYIrhz05o

Thank you all so much for listening, we hope to see you back on the road later this year and will keep you posted on any further developments in our world. Until then, stay tuned for live streams, Q&A, merch sales, and much more from the Allegaeon camp over the next few months. You rule, and thanks again.”

Allegaeon Premiere New Video For “Colors Of The Currents” Feat. Christina Sandsengen

Allegaeon have premiered a new video for their song “Colors Of The Currents.” This track features Christina Sandsengen and it appears on the band’s latest album “Apoptosis.“

Guitarist Greg Burgess commented:

“As long-time fans know, I love putting classical guitar tracks on Allegaeon records. The reason is twofold: first I want to give the listeners a chance to catch their breath. Ear fatigue when listening to extreme music is an unfortunate side effect. Secondly is to promote the instrument itself, and my love of classical music.

The “Colors of the Currents” is my first foray into duet composition. Its conception was the result of being recognized by the classical community for my work in Allegaeon. This was both shocking and humbling for me. Having works played alongside the likes of Bach at doctoral recitals seemed like goals from a life I thought I left behind when I decided to devote my life to Allegaeon.

For the “Colors of the Currents,” I had the honor of performing with the venerable Christina Sandsengen from Oslo, Norway. Her album “Shades and Contrasts” caught my attention while on the US leg of our tour with Ne Obliviscaris. Her interpretations, use of dynamics and colors, are all laudable, and what I strive to achieve in my own playing. They are heartfelt, moving, and quite frankly an amazing example of the emotional range of the instrument.

The piece itself was composed knowing that it would be paired with “Tsunami and Submergence.” I wanted to capture the feeling of water moving around the listener. As currents in real life ebb and flow so does the intensity of the piece. The idea to separate the tracks “Tsunami and Submergence” from the “Colors of the Currents” was made right before we went into the studio, for ease of the listener to navigate where they wish on the album.”
