"We’re all very excited to be back and are looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces. Be ready to party!"
Two tracks on Spotify's Viral 50 - USA playlist!
So, remember a few weeks ago, we wrote an article titled "New Polyphia is here to make you feel like an inferior musician." ANNNND they're back to do more of the same. This time, their absolute GOD-TIER drummer Clay Aeschliman's click track went out, changing the entire landscape of the performance for him, trying to desperately play along to the live monitor foldback (barely dropping a beat, mind you), their drum tech taps out the tempo for him on his leg for the next 30 minutes.
If you've never checked out the band Polyphia, go watch the tracks/clips on their Youtube channel and come back. Tell me you haven't wanted to just put down your instrument and never touch it again, cos chances are you'll never hit that level of technical proficiency and musicality. Still.... CRACKING tunes and chops. Mesmerising to watch and hear. Cop this new one, it's called Playing God.
New Riffs, New Licks.
"We don’t care what people call us." - Clay Gober, Polyphia.
