Art By Numbers will be releasing their debut full length, Reticence: The Musical, on May 29th 2012.
The band introduces a sound of natural, raw expression and emotion while still pushing their musical abilities to the limit. In this debut ensemble of high energy tracks, Art By Numbers creates a unique blend of eclectic, melodic, and astounding musical work to go along with the catchy yet thought invoking vocals of front man, Anthony James. All the while, the compositions still feature heavy orchestration, using each instrument in a multitude of ways while covering great amounts of technical ability. Never trying to strain the listeners attention span, the album packs massive amounts of musical content into short tracks that seem to serve as “three minute statements”. From jazz to classical, the album covers a wide spectrum of musical styles while still incorporating the intensity that has become such a huge part of the new movement of the progressive mindset.
The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Human Abstract). Guitarists, Victor Corral and Dustin Georgeson were able to receive more than just influence when they traveled to Los Angeles to study under the tutelage of critically acclaimed guitarist, A.J. Minette (The Human Abstract).
