    NewEARS Presents:

    A Day of Prog - May 31st, 2014
    The Regent Theatre - Arlington, MA

    IZZ, Resistor, Baked Beans,
    Sonus Umbra, Mavara

    Details coming soon from the Regent Theater on May 15th.

    Founded by Galgano brothers (Tom and John) IZZ has performed at numerous venues and festivals including: Rosfest 04, CalProg 04/05, Progday 02/06, NEARfest 07 and the upcoming Terra Incognita Progressive Rock Festival . IZZ released their sixth and most recent studio album, Crush of Night, to rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

    RESISTOR is the rock quartet of Steve Unruh, Fran Turner, Barry Farrands, and Rob Winslow. The band's sound is characterized by merging modern progressive and rock song structures with an organic classic rock sound. Their classic rock sound is probably due to their preferred recording technique of having everyone play the basic tracks in the same room at the same time, like bands did the "old days." This allows RESISTOR's recorded music to "breathe," as you can hear the band members adjust to each others' energy, tempo, and feel in real-time.

    Winter Soulstice marks the 5th studio album, and the 20th anniversary of the band Sonus Umbra. Originally formed in Mexico City, Sonus Umbra now resides in Chicago. The current line-up is an all-new ensemble featuring some of Chicago's best progressive rock musicians: Rich Poston and Tim McCaskey on guitar and vocals, Brian Harris on keyboards, Steve Royce on flute, vocals and holophonics, Roey Ben-Yoseph on lead vocals, with Andy Tillotson on drums and vocals and Luis Nasser on bass the last two standing from previous incarnations. Sonus Umbra plays dark, symphonic prog rock that is equally influenced by bands like Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Rush, Jethro Tull, Iron Maiden and King crimson.

    Mavara, is Iran's first premier progressive rock band. The name Mavara translates to "beyond everything you think" which speaks to the essence of their music. The band was formed in 2001 by composer/keyboardist Farhood Ghadiri and over the years has had a fluid line-up of members, performing extensively in Tehran and Karaj. Currently Mavara is comprised of Ghadiri along with Ashkan Hamidi /vocals, James Welch/drums, Scott Abene/guitar, Sina Khodaiefer/ bass and Anis Oveisi/keyboardist. Because of their unique sound and talent, Mavara quickly gained notoriety in Iran, receiving acclaim from the Tehran Industry and Science University as "Best Rock Band at a Live Performance".
