Equations - Hero Cities of The Soviet Union
This is seriously one of the most exciting math rock bands I’ve heard in recent times from Portugal! Seriously dance-y with some of the most obscure (is that necessarily a bad thing in this genre? no…) vocals I think I’ve ever heard.
Check out the trailer for the new independent full-length documentary that explored the Do It Together scenes all over the world! Tons of Math Rock bands are involved in this! visit: http://www.doittogether.us/
Hey, my name’s Alex Vissaridis and I designed the cover for TTNG’s upcoming album. I thought I’d show you a little behind-the-scenes stuff and let you in on the ideas behind the cover.
Below are four images from the initial art direction. I created these as a way to visualise what I thought about TTNG’s music. To me, their sound is complex, nostalgic and introspective, and something I usually listen to alone through headphones or in my room. The images I created were made out of cuttings from old comics; a medium that is also generally consumed by yourself, in your room.
The final direction however looks at the Mayan calendar and the common misconception that the world is going to end on December 21st. In fact, what happens on this day is that the Mayan calendar will simply enter a new long count (22.214.171.124.0), which happens approximately every 144,000 days (or 394 years). It reflects the changes in the band’s lineup and a new beginning as a threepiece.
Working with This Town Needs Guns on this project was brilliant; they’re awesome guys and great to get on with, and I look forward to working with them again.
This is a band called PERHAPS and this is their song/set called ‘Volume One’.
It’s non-stop. It’s jazzy. It’s math rocky. It’s post rocky. It’s progressive. It’s aggressive. It’s chill as hell and most importantly, It’s mind-blowingly awesome.
It’s like the music that should be playing in the background of every boss-battle you’ve ever fought on a games console or the music that should be playing for the introduction fight/chase scene for a future James Bond reboot that I have no doubts will happen in 30 years time.
Above what you see and hear is a live version, but if I were you I’d take the time to listen to the recorded version on the link below.

You may have noticed a lack of posts lately on this math rock blog (with only a few here and there).
This is because me and a friend have been hard at work on putting together a (digital) zine!
It centres around lots of Math Rock and Emo bands so please check it out! :)
Normal math rock blog posts will resume!
Willow’s going on a little mini tour with the Sharpest from July 10-15 (last date we have a show booked in Providence). Looking to see if anybody knows of any places to play at between these dates. Send us a message on here or email@example.com
Thanks for the submission, willowri! Hopefully some people can help you out!
