POLY-MATH Reveal New Member, New Single + Tease Forthcoming EP

14th October 2019

Brighton-based prog rock band POLY-MATH are pleased to announce their return with a brand new EP scheduled for release in 2020. As a teaser of what fans can expect from new material, the band have unveiled epic lead single ‘Sensors In Everything’ which is available on digital service providers from 8th November 2019. Further details of the new record will be released over the coming months.

‘Sensors In Everything’ is the band’s first release to include new member Josh Gesner on keyboards and synthesisers, adding another richly-toned string to their increasingly-versatile bow, and placing the band firmly in prog rock territory.

The newly-minted foursome are also delighted to announce a run of November 2019 UK and EU tour dates with support coming from fellow experimental band Bodyhound (see below for full listings).

The new track marks the first of an ambitious two-part release, with the quartet recording for the first time with Brighton producer Mark Roberts (Black Peaks, The Physics House Band, Toska, Delta Sleep, and many more) whose influence has led to a more organic, aggressive sound than has been tradition for the band.

The new record follows Poly-Math’s traditional form of writing around historical events and movements influenced by real polymaths, this time shining the spotlight on polymath Gerald Heard and his pursuit of the evolution of consciousness. A British-born American historian, science writer, public lecturer, educator, and philosopher, the track includes fragments from a television interview with Heard discussing his thoughts on psychedelic drugs, and the limitations on human perception of reality.

Fast becoming cult-favourites and respected luminaries of the UK’s underground progressive music scene, the new single sees the band on typically exhilarating form across nearly 15 minutes of heavy, experimental music that pushes boundaries in just about every direction possible.

With appearances at ArcTanGent Festival, PORTALS Festival, and Weird & Wonderful Festival followed up by a UK tour with Coldbones late last year, Poly-Math will be taking their traditionally-studio-based approach to music to wider audiences than ever before over the coming months, with further live dates TBC.

The band’s latest record, double album House of Wisdom | We Are The Devil, was released back in 2018 on Lonely Voyage Records and Nice Weather For Airstrikes, drawing support from BBC Radio One, Kerrang! Magazine, The Independent, Guitar & Bass Magazine, PROG Magazine, Revolver Magazine, Total Guitar, Modern Drummer and many more.

Sensors In Everything is released 8th November 2019

Further details of new material TBA.
