SYN{A}PSE w/ Villains + Observer



Emerging from the sleepy oceanfront city of Victoria on the West Coast of British Columbia, SYN{A}PSE is a band hell bent on sharing their music with the world. Using a variety of musical backgrounds to their advantage, the band aims to blaze a new path in the alternative/progressive/rock scene. Stylistically, they are comparable to bands such as Thrice, Coheed and Cambria, Tool and Alexisonfire. With the help of creative chord voicings, dramatic use of dynamics, and soaring melody lines each song reaches out to the listener and brings them along for the ride. 


The band was formed in the fall of 2008 with Jacob Redlin on drums, Justin D. Lee on guitar and Noah Edwards on guitar and lead vocals. James Gibson later joined on Bass to complete the quartet, and the group has been writing their unique brand of music since. In March of 2010 SYN{A}PSE released its debut album “Auditory Complex,” which was recorded and mixed at Full Circle Studios in Langford, B.C. In September 2010, SYN{A}PSE was chosen as 91.3 The Zone (Victoria, B.C.) Band of the Month. Some noteworthy gigs include the 2011 UVIC Grad Party, and the 2011 Capital City Tattoo Convention. In April of 2011, SYN{A}PSE once again went into studio, this time at Vogville Studios in Vancouver B.C. with Producer Matthew Roach and Engineer Joel Livesey. They recorded a 5 song self titled EP, which was released late summer of 2011. This was followed up with a Western Canadian tour, and with no plans to stop any time soon be sure to keep an eye out for SYN{A}PSE stopping in a City near you.
