Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Save Us From The Archon (SUFTA) has sculpted a unique sound that is, at once, aggressive, chaotic, heartfelt, and hypnotic. Fast paced angular progressions are counterbalanced by soothing mellow interludes. The broad dynamics are tied together by their progressive foundation with a distinct melodic sentiment. While SUFTA’s compositions nod to influences spanning math rock, metal, and punk, their sound is unmistakable.
On their new album L’Eclisse, one will find no human voice. While many bands depend upon a vocalist to express their creative vision, no words are necessary for SUFTA. Their expressive writing and poignant playing tell a vibrant story all their own.
SUFTA remains true to their DIY ethic on L’Eclisse as they wrote, recorded, and produced the record themselves. But, to further expand upon their vision, they have enlisted help to bring this new offering to life. The record marks their debut for Tragic Hero Records. Anthony Calebretta (Protest the Hero, Intervals) is mixing and mastering.
Andrew Cresto (Guitar), Nelson Brooks (Guitar), Samantha Zunich (Bass), Devin Greig (Drums) have been playing together for several years and multiple albums, continually exploring their sound and refining their craft. Now, with L’Eclisse, SUFTA presents listeners with a snapshot of their latest evolution.
SUFTA’s Tragic Hero debut is out on March 18th, 2016. See them live across the U.S. with Intervals, Plini, and Angel Vivaldi March 17th – April 23rd.
