A progressive rock band from Portland, Maine. The term “progressive rock” is used with reluctance in their case, though, as most of their music seems to defy genre. Imagine that the love child of Jeff Buckley, The Mars Volta and Incubus started making music. Then, somewhere along the way, it had an affair with Queens of the Stone Age. The offspring of that relationship then started making its own music, and it was under the name Five of the Eyes. In early 2017 FOTE began recording their debut LP, The Venus Transit. Produced and engineered by Jonathan Wyman at The Halo, the new album musically picks-up where the band left off with their self-produced sophomore EP Hierophantasm. However, with Wyman acting as both producer and engineer, the songs off The Venus Transit soar to stunning new heights, previously unachievable in the confines of the bands home studio. The flawless fidelity matched by equally impressive performances by all five members, makes for a listening experience unlike anything that the band has produced to date. “Coming at you with explosive beauty, the lead song, Atmosphere, transports you to an ethereal plane of existence. Having accomplished that elusive task that has baffled failed songwriters for generations, the album then far exceeds the standard set by the first track.” — MOSHPIT NATION The official release of The Venus Transit online and at your local record store is 9/29/2017.
