Trioscapes release mind-blowing live performance footage for "Blast Off"; video available
The North Carolina based "jazz-fusion" threesome that is TRIOSCAPES continues to create buzz as the May 8 release of their debut record, "Separate Realies" looms on the horizon. The group, whose album is seeing a world-wide release via Metal Blade Records, features Walter Fancourt on sax, Matt Lynch on drums and Between The Buried And Me's Dan Briggs on bass.
Heavily influenced by the Mahavishnu Orchestra, the three musicians got together merely with the intention of jamming out and covering some Mahavishnu tunes. This, however, went so smoothly and was so rewarding for them that they decided to write some music and found a home for it at Metal Blade, who has been very accommodating to Between The Buried And Me and their members - releasing Tommy Rogers, vocalist of BTBAM's solo record, "Pulse", last year as well. The Mahavishnu Orchestra cover made it on the album, and is of the track "Celestial Terrestrial Commuters".
A few weeks back, Briggs and Fancourt were gracious enough to join Tri-State Rock for a full-hour takeover of our LIVE show, where they played the tunes that inspired them while writing "Separate Realities" and even dished on some new BTBAM details. The video can be viewed here.
Today, Trioscapes proved that they've got the chops heard on the record for any who doubted by posting a video of them performing "Blast Off" the record's single live in-studio. The amazing video, which truly showcases how incredibly talented these three musicians are and how remarkable it can be when they come together, can be viewed below.

This may be as close to seeing the band's live performance that we'll get for now: Briggs told Tri-State Rock that he's aiming to get the group out for some shows at some point this summer, though that means he's got to squeeze it in between writing the BTBAM record, going out on Summer Slaughter (which just had its dates and venues announced today) and the release and inevitable massive world tour that Between The Buried and Me will embark on in support of the new record.
