Distant Lights, the 4-piece classically trained rock powerhouse out of Austin TX, combine equal parts science, artistry, curiosity, and tenacity to convey a truly magnetic passion for songwriting and live performances. For 7 years, DL has been crafting their aggressively beautiful, and hauntingly intense alternative rock. Hues of dark and mysterious blend with a colorful palette of melody and classical exploration, toeing the line between rock and performance art, pop and metal, serenity and a storm. While the bands rock shows are full of exciting lights, lazers, video projections, and holograms, they are just at home on the acoustic stage, playing more and more “unplugged” shows as of late. This spring Distant Lights releases “Beneath the Waves”, an Acoustic EP (their 3rd studio album), followed by the feature length documentary Blindfolded on the Horizon. The film explores their path and progression from a cello heavy prog rock band, through the deep chasm they were thrown into after the disappearance of their principle investor/mentor, and the long road of recovery through member changes and individual struggles. Constantly evolving and growing both musically and spiritually, this new album and documentary offer a vulnerable look behind the curtain at their songwriting process, current obstacles, and the purging of their past skins. “These songs are passionate and real…this acoustic album is a release from all the bounds we thought entangled us in the first two rock albums” says vocalist Gabriel Fry
