((Engine Down)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Always pushing their sound in new directions, Richmond's Engine Down refuse to be limited to the guitar, bass and drums of their earlier work. Proving that a post-rock band can still rock, Engine Down has lately incorporated such un-rock instruments as cellos and vibraphones, in addition to a good dose of knob-twiddling, without watering down their advanced sense of rhythm and sumo bass lines. They are much more than just another loud/soft/loud band that will burn out after two albums and a few tours.

A band seeking a new identity and sound is nothing new, but only one in a dozen pull it off. Engine Down is the rare one that does. Their old fans embrace the new sound and a whole new crop of kids are getting into Engine Down 2004-style.
