Set and Setting are an instrumental post-rock band from St. Petersburg, Florida, whose work ranges from drone and ambient music to experimental metal.
The band was founded by guitarist Shane Handal as a recording project in 2009. Several musicians came and went, with the lineup finally settling around drummers Mark Etherington and Stephen Handal (who also contributes ambient effects), guitarist Ryan Fugate, and bassist Nick Sibilia. Their debut album, Equanimity, was issued in 2013 via Science of Silence Records
, which they supported with the effort of D.I.Y. touring throughout the underground and extreme music scenes in the American South, followed by the Northeast and Midwest. Set and Setting signed to Prosthetic for their second album, A Vivid Memory, which was released in 2014 and followed by nationwide touring. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi
