((Del Rey)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

This band is right up our alley! Del Rey is an explosive instrumental band from Chicago that rock such crazy time-changing rhythms they need two drummers to pull off their math-rockian feats of hectic cadence. The band started back in 1997 and it's apparent even from the very first listen that these guys are craftsmen of their instruments. In other words, they're really, really tight.

It would be easy for tempo exploits such as these to sound messy and muddled from a band that didn't know any better, but Del Ray have been at mastering this for a decade and definitely have it down. Their songs slowly and surely build towards wonderful crashes of climactic release.

This is a basic guitar-bass-and-drums band in the absolutely best sense. This is rock. For fans of From Monument to Masses, By the End of Tonight and Trail of Dead.
