The Reformation - Ghost House Funk
The Reformation is a progressive rock band that formed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2008. The name stems from the literal reformation of a defunct group into a more evolved band; in the figurative sense, they attempt to reform music into their own interpretations. Their lineup includes Kyle Brower on drums and vocals, Matt Penco on guitar, keyboards, and vocals, Caroline Schneider on vocals, and Dan Miller on bass guitar and vocals. These young, devoted musicians show their listeners why they believe music is the most powerful form of art.
Their sound is influenced by many talented artists, but primarily King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Audioslave, Yes, The Mars Volta, Alan Parsons, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Consequently, their own style is a melting pot of many different types of music that includes funk, blues, and swing. They create catchy dance songs that can be sung along to, while simultaneously incorporating the more unconventional elements of heavy psychedelia, atonality, and experimental improvisations, topped off with a twist of humor. While remaining completely progressive, they strive for a commercially viable sound. Because of this, their songs open the average listener’s eyes to multi-faceted music with developed musicianship and a tight sound.
They released their first full-length album The Reformation in 2011 and are currently promoting it by performing around Pennsylvania. They are also working on their second album, set for a late 2012 release. The Reformation seeks to find a record label that understands their sound and wants to assist in promoting the band and its music.
