3 is a band apart: Dark yet uplifting, spiritual without any connection to religion - theirs is a sound that transcends the genre conformity of modern pop culture. Rapid-fire acoustic guitar infused with dynamic percussion, animated drumming and thunderous bass culminate in a listening experience that is at once accessible and unique. Polyrhythms pulse within a symphony of driving metal guitars and melodic vocal acrobatics. 3 offers musicality without pretension.
The Woodstock, NY-based group began touring nationally in 2003 when they hit the road with Coheed and Cambria. They turned a lot of heads, winning audiences with their passion and unique brand of virtuosity. The buzz had begun, not just amongst music fans but within the industry as well.
Enter 2006, after the successful re-release of Wake Pig on Metal Blade Records, and the completion of their first world tour, 3 returned home to begin work on a new record. Drumming guru, Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello), offered up his legendary studio and drum collection, and so the boys set up shop and recorded their masterpiece: The End Is Begun.
In anticipation of their new record's 7-24-07 release, 3 hit the road with Porcupine Tree in Spring '07 touring all over the US and Canada to rave reviews. One can definitely expect to see great things from this band who has already received over 400,000 plays at MYSPACE.com, over 150,000 downloads at PUREVOLUME.com, and played with the likes of Coheed & Cambria, Porcupine Tree, 36 Crazyfists, Chiodos, Atreyu, Kiss Kiss, Underoath, Boys Night Out, Bad Brains, The Bronx, Straylight Run, Vendetta Red, and Your Enemies Friends, and many more...
