Those Vibrant Young People Are Dead
MERGENCE, is a four-piece band from Tempe, AZ with a sound that rivals the great classic rock bands while it full on rockets into the future. Mixing melodic songwriting and strong vocals from Adam Bruce with screaming guitar from The Yod over a super solid rhythm section founded by Brandon Shupe and Jason Roedl give the listener pause to reflect on life and then rock out. Their debut album entitled "Those Vibrant Young People Are Dead" (Feb 2011) is a mix of pop, rock and blues taking you on a journey through life, love, sex, and death. Recorded mostly live (who does that anymore) and produced by Bob Hoag and Mergence at Flying Blanket Recording Studios. Their original sound is strangely familiar as you can sometimes place an influence of Zeppelin or The Beatles or The Black Keys but can never say for sure what influence you are hearing. Dynamite & Kerosene is a three and a half minute pop rocker that seems made for radio. My Prayer is the blues but... not. At the Salt is well; it needs to be heard to be believed. Look for more from this extremely talented and skilled band and for Pete's sake man go see their show! Believe it.
