Intervals Joined By Raunchy Vocalist Mike Semesky, Debut “Ephemeral”

After a a stint as their bass player, Raunchy vocalist Mike Semesky (formerly of The HAARP Machine) has joined Intervals as their new vocalist.

Semesky said of that:

“I’m extremely happy to announce that I am the singer of Intervals. I joined the band on bass in early 2013, but after writing and experimenting with vocals over demos of the band’s new material, the four of us knew that that was the direction we were meant to go. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a talented group of musicians and I’m extremely proud of the album we all worked so hard on. We can’t wait for you all to hear it!”

Band guitarist Aaron Marshall meanwhile offered:

“We’re incredibly excited and proud to announce Mike as the band’s singer. Intervals has always been about open minded, forward thinking, progressive music with no boundaries. It’s also been about staying true to the art we feel compelled to make, and we couldn’t be happier with the dynamic Mike brings to the music. For those who remember, the band put out a feeler for a vocalist with the release of “The Space Between“, but in lieu of finding the right candidate, we decided to move forward with our initial intent: Make music.

Mike joined the band as our bass player, but after only a few weeks of touring, it was apparent that this was the chemistry we were after all along. The human voice is an instrument and from our perspective, we are by definition, still an “instrumental” band, now with added dimension and perspective. The band still retains its identity in guitar driven, progressive rock/metal and there’s something on this record for everyone. We couldn’t be more thankful for the support you have all shown us over the past few years and we hope you continue to follow along on this journey we share. This release is our proudest musical accomplishment to date and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”

The group are looking to a spring release for their coming debut album with Semesky at the helm and have launched the below stream of the new single “Ephemeral” from it. Meanwhile you can catch them overseas with Protest The Hero, TesseracT and The Safety Fire, dates available here.

    • Meh. Not to sound like an Intervals hipster but their music was so good that they didn’t need a vocalist and don’t feel like they one they tabbed does anything to elevate the overall quality.

      • I’m not familiar enough with the band to agree/disagree with you. But I can sure sympathize that the term “Hipster” has made it incredibly hard to thoughtfully critique music lately….

    • I’ll say it. Vocals are what ties a band together and is the very hardest thing to replace, and unless you’re Liquid Tension Experiment, vocals or GTFO.

        I completely agree. I don’t mind an instrumental track now and again, but it gets pretty dull over the long haul. Pelican has had some good stuff, and even though Isis aren’t entirely instrumental at times it sure seemed like it. But yeah, for the large part if I see a band is instrumental I’m fairly disinterested from the word go.

        Always been a DT fan but never listen to Liquid Tension. I should get on that.
