SKYSAW MAKES CHICAGO DEBUT AT METRO JUNE 25
Metro is pleased to host the Chicago debut of the new band Skysaw on Saturday, June 25. Tickets go on sale this Saturday May 21 at noon at the Metro Box Office and online at metrochicago.com.
Skysaw is the new project of acclaimed drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, DC-based singer Mike Reina and guitarist Anthony Pirog, Reina and Pirog were writing cohorts in the much-loved Fairfax, VA-based group, The Jackfields, whose Pink Floyd-meets-Beach Boys psychedelia was widely lauded. Jimmy Chamberlin is known to music fans around the world as the virtuoso behind the drum kit with such venerated acts as Smashing Pumpkins, Zwan and The Jimmy Chamberlin Complex.
After forming in 2009, the band set out to create brilliant, tuneful and whip-smart pop music that can loosely be described with words like “progressive” and “symphonic,” while at the same time deserving their own category. Their debut album, Great Civilizations, will be released June 21 on Dangerbird Records.
What people are saying about Skysaw:
“A collection of prog-leaning, psychedelic jams with flourishes of acoustic guitars, keyboards, piano, and more.” – Spin April 2011
“Tightly constructed chunk of melodic rock music. It’s tuneful and intricate, yet doesn’t trip over into proggy hysteria.” – Buzz Bands LA March 2011
