Having released one of the most dynamic and impressive progressive crossover albums of the year with their debut album, With Haste On Its Breath, Ohio’s MAID MYRIAD continues to take these soaring, ambitious and infectious tunes to the people, booking new waves of regional touring in support of the record.
Next month will see the MAID MYRIAD trio playing a run of shows through the Northeast, beginning with a one-off gig on December 6th in their hometown of Akron, Ohio. Less than two weeks later the band will tour eastward, beginning December 18th in Clifton, New Jersey followed by Brooklyn, New York and Doylestown, Pennsylvania the next two nights, performing alongside the likes of Red Sun Rising, Flight 619, NY in 64, Natural Stranger, Carved Up, Witch Fist and more throughout the month’s shows.
A more intensive East Coast tour which will engulf almost all of February is currently being planned, including shows with MAID MYRIAD brethren East Of The Wall, El Drugstore and many others. Additionally, the band will be scheduling more live dates on their way to perform at 2015’s SXSW gathering in Austin and more. A full routing for the upcoming tours will be issued in the weeks ahead.
With Haste On Its Breath is out now in a six-panel digipak CD via Nefarious Industries — the home of a bunch of big, dumb noise — the independent label founded by members of MAID MYRIAD, A Fucking Elephant, El Drugstore and more. Additionally, the digital download by itself is now “name your price” direct through the label RIGHT HERE.

Recorded in Akron, Ohio and Keyport, New Jersey, produced and engineered by guitarist Jeff Klemm at Free Truman Productions, and mixed and mastered by Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam, etc.), With Haste On Its Breath brings out a solid hour of dazzling musicianship and powerful, dynamic vocals from MAID MYRIAD. MetalSucks, issued, “…it’s massive, melodic, introspective, and tortured, like a wonderful dream that quickly metamorphasizes into the kind of nightmare that continues to rattle and haunt you even after you awaken, stuck to your psyche like gum to the bottom of a shoe…”. American Aftermath offers, “The band combines an array of influences, including progressive rock and 90’s post-hardcore/emo, into a dynamic and emotional display of alternative rock mastery… Jeff Klemm’s near angelic vocals are sure to be stuck in your head all day. In fact, we guarantee that.” The Cleveland Scene made MAID MYRIAD their Band Of The Week, stating, “…the songs stay true to ‘kaleidoscope rock,’ the term the band has used to describe its neo-progressive rock. Heavily textured songs such as ‘Camera Eye’ and ‘Dance by the Moonlight’ have elements of Mars Volta. But the group slows things down for the simmering ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ and ‘Waiting for December,’ showing it can capably change gears.”
