Silver Machine releases “Symmetry”

Local space-rock band Silver Machine is set to release new album, Symmetry in a two-part launch. The first stage, the internet-only release for downloads and CD pre-orders, starts today, May 1.

You might recall that just about a year ago, the band went into orbit. Xpress was informed that Silver Machine planned on “long term travel via studio-equipped space craft from which the band plans to beam transmissions back to earth.”

There’s much about Symmetry — the spacey jams, the other-worldly vocals shot through effects, the shimmering percussion, burbling synths and ethereal thermion — that all suggest the band really has spent a year free of gravity and earthly confines.

Symmetry in hard copy lands in area music stores in two more weeks. The album was self-produced and funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign.
