Ohio’s progressive/melodic post-hardcore trio, MAID MYRIAD, has confirmed a massive six-week US tour for most of April and May, co-headlining the entire nearly forty-city run with Madison, Wisconsin progressive/instrumental metal trio, The Fine Constant.
The Woven In Haste Tour 2015 begins on April 9th, as both bands kick things off with shows in their respective hometowns. The next night, the bands rendezvous in Erie, Pennsylvania for the first show together, and then wind through the entire country together through May 23rd, closing down in MAID MYRIAD‘s home of Akron. The trek is presented by Heavy Blog Is Heavy, who issues of the tour, “We’re particularly proud to be sponsoring this tour, as it showcases two young, original and excellent bands. The Fine Constant are at the cutting edge of instrumental adventure prog, featuring wild runs into dreamy territories where guitar leads mesh with thoughts in crazy-sweet landscape. MAID MYRIAD convey a different vision of progressive music, tempering it with amazing alternative vocals and an overall darker sensibility. Both recent albums by the bands, Woven In Light and With Haste On Its Breath respectively are a tour de force of what aspiring musicians can accomplish.”
MAID MYRIAD is fully available for interviews of all varieties preceding the tour, in addition to in-person on the trek. The band is also available for local performances, acoustic shows, in-store sessions and other random adventures as time allows on the tour.
In October, MAID MYRIAD released their debut album, With Haste On Its Breath, through Nefarious Industries, the DIY label co-operated by the band’s drummer, Greg Meisenberg. Unveiling one of the most dynamic and well-executed progressive rock/post-hardcore albums of the year, the hour-long opus was 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 is out now in a six-panel digipak CD and via a name your price download RIGHT HERE.

Ohio.com added MAID MYRIAD to their best of 2014 lists, and MetalSucks issued of With Haste On Its Breath, “its 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…” The Akron Beacon Journal hailed, “MAID MYRIAD, which calls its music ‘kaleidoscope rock’ thankfully digs deeper and further back into the ’90s recalling the intricate, herky-jerky dynamics and start-stop riffs of bands such as Sunny Day Real Estate and At the Drive-In and heavier contemporary proggy bands such as Tool and The Mars Volta, minus the 10-minute songs.” American Aftermath boasts, “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.”
