Painted In Exile blew me away in 2009 with its Revitalized EP, and with talks of a full length in the works I couldn't have been more excited. Unfortunately that never came to fruition in 2011 as promised and the band went essentially radio silence for the next few years.
In 2015, the band released a new song called "DM," which you can stream and download for free below, and said a new record was coming for sure this time! Now in 2016, Painted In Exile is delivering on that promise. The band is asking for $15,000 to make a new record, and since the campaign launched yesterday, has already hit around the $1,500 mark! So get in there and make this thing happen!
The world needs some solid progressive metal with a whole lot of music theory and weird shit thrown in there. I mean, if you look at the list of contributors for the IndieGoGo, Scar Symmetry's Per Nilsson tossed the band a few bucks to make the record… and that's a man who knows a thing or two about good music.
