From the press release:
HERD OF INSTINCT Plays ProgDay 2013!
"The influences...well...look no further than the opening track 'Praxis' and you'll find 40 years of UK Prog and French exploration (in particular Crimso and Heldon) assembled into a melting pot that makes you gasp at its breadth and stature, quality and cohesion."
- DEAD EARNEST (UK)
Drawing its inspiration from wide-ranging sources that include multi-cultural music, literary clues, horror and cinematic film scores, rock, avant-garde, electronic, prog, and psychedelic music, HERD OF INSTINCT creates a style that is all its own. The Texas band began in 2007 and has since released two albums on DJAM KARET's indie label Firepool Records. Though normally performing as a trio, for it's ProgDay performance the band will expand to a quartet to better capture the complexities of the studio recordings. HERD OF INSTINCT will be featuring material from the new 2013 release Conjure.
HERD OF INSTINCT (US) will join MIRIODOR (Canada), SOUND OF CONTACT (US), THANK YOU SCIENTIST (US) and SIMAKDIALOG (Indonesia) at ProgDay 2013, the nineteenth edition of the world's longest running progressive rock festival. ProgDay 2013 will take place on Saturday, August 31st, and Sunday, September 1st, at Storybook Farm in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
