When Atlanta metalcore quartet Obsidian Sky takes the stage at Masquerade this Thursday, May 12, they will be playing songs from their forthcoming EP, “Daydreams and Nightmares,” for a sold-out crowd.
“Daydreams and Nightmares” officially launches on June 7 on Redglare Records. Fans will have the choice of purchasing a CD or an electronic album via iTunes. The five-song EP has a driving, aggressive sound featuring fan favorites such as Parasites and Catacombs.
The show at the iconic Masquerade includes Obsidian Sky, Between the Buried and Me, and Job for a Cowboy. “It’s definitely good to be playing with bands that have inspired us and influenced our own music,” says drummer Mo Al-Boinen. “It’s a great opportunity for our band as we aim to take things to the next level, and will help us reach a lot of new fans as we approach our EP release date.”
During the show at Masquerade, Obsidian Sky will be selling advance copes of “Daydreams and Nightmares” as well as new merchandise. Fans can grab a new Parasites t-shirt, Obsidian Sky buttons, and stickers to support the quartet.
With an aggressive sound that can be related to bands like Pantera, Kill Switch Engage, As I Lay Dying, and All That Remains, Obsidian Sky has been a driving force on the regional music scene since their inception in 2010. The quartet features Khalifa Al-Boinen (vocals, guitar), Tim Grindle (lead guitar), Dillan Lynn (bass) and Mo Al-Boinen (drums).
Obsidian Sky plays extensively in the Atlanta area and Southeast United States. Their first full-length album will be released by Redglare Records in early 2012. More information about Obsidian Sky can be found online at www.RedglareRecords.com/artists/Obsidian-Sky.
