About Optic Oppression

“Find A Way is designed to break some necks, whether dancing or headbanging,” says Optic Oppression’s front-man, Kendall Cage. But that’s not all the band has in store for their fans. Out of western NY, Optic Oppression is a synth-rock phenomenon in it's infancy. Born from the culmination of the band’s twisted childhood traumas, incarcerations and abuse Optic is about the human evolution – not just of ourselves but of society - and emerging from the struggle scarred, but stronger than ever. With dark bass lines, driving beats, and a taste for musical circuitry Optic Oppression is now poised to turn heads and reshape the music scene. Optic’s newest release, Find A Way, is the band’s first conceptual EP. Splicing deranged audio samples together with rock guitars and throwing it over a hard rhythmic backbone with a touch of EDM, the band brings to life the sordid stories felt by so many but spoken by so few. From it's inception Optic Oppression’s music was made to break up the monotony of the western New York rock scene. After the untimely and violent death of their guitarist the remaining members of the renowned hard rock band, 86 To Nowhere, fell into a brief hiatus. Unable to find an adequate replacement guitarist it soon became apparent that the band had met it’s end and a new band had to be formed from its ashes. Lead singer Kendall Cage then set out with a vision to find a band for a new, more innovative sound. When he met multi-instrumentalists, Mike Novo, Greg Burt, Arrow Fitzgibbon, & Tracei Berlin the sparks ignited and the music began to take on a life of its own. On the forefront of musical evolution, Optic Oppression wields production as an instrument in itself. Combining influences ranging from Stabbing Westward to Nine Inch Nails, Linkin Park to Orgy, Optic Oppression walks the now shattered line between the analog and digital worlds. With a dark electronic writing style that has been described as "innovative" and "more than industrial", Optic Oppression’s new EP, Find A Way, seeks to grasp the cutting-edge and carve out a niche of it's own in a musical world where it seems everything has been done before. The various members have toured with KoRn, Otep, Sevendust, iwrestledabearonce and Mushroomhead, and have also shared the stage with many other national/international bands - Flyleaf, Avenged Sevenfold, Pigface, and Zeromancer just to name a few. Now formed together as one operational being, Optic Oppression has joined Combichrist for select dates on their US Fall 2016 Tour & Dawn Of Ashes on their Fire of the Phoenix 2017 Tour along with sharing the stage with the likes of , Julien-K, Fozzy, Doyle (of The Misfits), 3Teeth, American Head Charge, Gemini Syndrome, Motograter, Psyclon 9, Davey Suicide, Assemblage 23, Aesthetic Perfection, Echo Black, & Mike Busey and The Busey Beauties. / Featured in ION Indie Magazine Anniversary Edition : https://www.joomag.com/magazine/ion-indie-magazine-june-2016-volume-25/0767202001461706006 Brutal Resonance : http://www.brutalresonance.com/feature/exclusive-premiere-electro-rockers-optic-oppression-unveil-sparks-333 ElectroZombies : https://electrozombies.com/musicvideo/optic-oppression-sparks-3-33 BuffaloVibe : https://www.buffalovibe.com/articles/music/the-entrancing-nature-behind-optic-oppression The new album, "Find A Way" is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby!!
