Messenger announce signing to InsideOutMusic for second album

London-based progressive, psychedelic rockers Messenger have signed to InsideOutMusic for the release of their forthcoming second album ‘Threnodies’ due on April 22nd, 2016.

London-based progressive, psychedelic rockers Messenger have signed to InsideOutMusic for the release of their forthcoming second album ‘Threnodies’ due on April 22nd, 2016. They had this to say about the signing and new album:

“We’re very excited about our new journey with InsideOut and we hope that this new venture will take the band to the next level. Our new album ‘Threnodies’ was written and recorded over three months at Orgone Studios in London with our drummer Jaime Gomez Arellano handling the production and engineering duties. We like to think of it as an evolution of our first release ‘Illusory Blues’. We went to places we haven’t been before, while still keeping our identity.  It’s a modern day mix of progressive rock, hard rock and psychedelia.”

The 5-piece band released their debut album ‘Illusory Blues’ in 2014 to much acclaim, with the band winning the ‘Limelight’ award at the Progressive Music Awards that year, and being nominated for Best New Band at the Classic Rock Awards in 2015. Q Magazine called their debut “an intriguing and impressive first album”, while The Guardian said “they straddle the supermassive black hole between prog and folk.”

Messenger comprises:

Khaled Lowe: Guitars/Vocals

Jaime Gomez Arellano: Drums/Percussion

Barnaby Maddick: Guitars/Vocals

Dan Knight: Guitars/Keyboards

James Leach: Bass
