Melbourne progressive instrumental trio The Omnific - featuring the unique line-up of two bass players and a drummer – will release their long-awaited debut LP Escapades, to be released on October 8th, 2021 via Wild Thing Records. Escapades is the band’s most adventurous work to date, an instrumental mosaic that dances between the edges of progressive rock, djent, funk, nintendocore, and synth-driven electronic soundscapes, an aural experience akin to a journey to an alternate world through a dimension-hopping Tesla. Escapades is a record for those seeking to be challenged, and for those who wish to be blanketed by atmosphere with swirling textures, syncopation, euphoric highs, and melancholic lows.
After releasing three stunning EPs, the band have attracted interest and fans from all corners of the globe, clocking in over 5 million Spotify streams and 2 million views on their YouTube channel, an impressive feat for a band so early in their career. The album features a guest bassist performance from Clay Gober of Polyphia on the track Antecedent, with the record being brought to life by mixing engineer Adam Bentley (Felix Martin, Arch Echo), and mastering from Ermin Hamidovic (Periphery, Devin Townsend Band, Plini).
