If it’s powerhouse prog rock that you’re after, then the fast-rising Pareidolia is the band for you. Hailing from New York City and consisting of Chandler Mogel (vocals), Stephen Dadaian (guitars), Jon-Michael Caldwell (bass), and Ryan Bertone (drums), the band will be independently issuing their debut full-length, Denied Truths on June 24th (available through Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby but also streaming services like Spotify, Google Play, Apple Music, Tidal, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio and others).
“This was an interesting experience because it represents the first time we all worked together for an extensive amount of time,” explains Stephen (who also co-produced the album, along with Ethan Bill). “I wanted every track to have a special meaning on this album. While it’s not a concept album in the traditional sense, there are common themes that bind the tracks together. We touch on topics such as the trials and tribulations of man, overcoming our own faults, things we all face at one time or another in our lifetime. Trends come and go in music, but I feel music with substance and a meaningful message can never be swept to the side. We wanted the intensity and energy behind our message to match the music that was the vessel we were delivering it through.“
