An evocative, versatile, and largely instrumental/conceptual post-metal unit from the Arizona desert, With Our Arms to the Sun was formed in 2012 around the talents of Josh Breckenridge (guitars, noise, vocals), Joseph Leary (guitars, programming), Joseph Breckenridge (bass), and John McLucas (drums).
Employing a heady, textural blend of psychedelic rock, progressive metal, and electro-ambient, the band's cinematic style has drawn comparisons to other sonic boundary-pushing ensembles like Isis, Russian Circles, Pelican, and Coheed and Cambria. The band issued their well-received debut long-player The Trilogy independently in 2013, which resulted in a deal with Spitfire Records company founder/president Paul Bibeau's new Fade to Silence label in 2014. Far Away Wonder, which featured new songs along with reworked tracks from the Trilogy, arrived later that year. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
