Chilean Prog Ensemble Aisles Premiere Last Video of Live Series and Announce EP

The “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions will be out on July

Chilean Prog ensemble Aisles, South America’s most acclaimed prog band of the last 10 years, is premiering the last video of their “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions, for the song “Club Hawaii”, which was originally released on the album “Hawaii” (2016). The clip was directed by Bernardo Quesney, who has worked with artists like Gepe and Javiera Mena.

Says Aisles guitarist, German Vergara, “We knew that ‘Club Hawaii’ could not be left out of this live series. It’s a very collective effort in which we incorporated elements from electronic and Latin music, pop, jazz, and even metal, so as to transport the listener to the future in which the concept of the album takes place. We used more distortion, sounded heavier than usual and Sebastián recites a heart wrenching poem in the darkest section of the song. Personally it’s my favorite on the ‘Hawaii’ album and I’m very proud of my lyrics. When playing it live I get goosebumps every time we reach the part ‘Turn my soul into flesh and soil and blood and waves…’”

The session started with the video for ‘Clouds Motion’, and it continued with ‘Shallow and Daft’, ‘Still Alive’, and ‘Club Hawaii’. All of these songs will be included on their new EP, “Live from Estudio del Sur” which will be out on July 6th and it will be available on digital platforms and on a limited edition CD. To pre-order: https://www.aislesproject.com/product/live-from-estudio-del-sur-ep-cd/

With four studio albums and a career spanning thirteen years, Aisles have become South America’s most acclaimed prog act of the last decade. Their daring combination of rock, fusion, jazz and world music illustrates the band’s uniquely eclectic approach. The group has played in South America and Europe, and their albums have been released in Europe, the Americas, and Japan.

In 2009 their second album “In Sudden Walks” was nominated for Best Foreign Record in the Italian Prog Awards and the group was invited to open the 11th Progressive Rock Festival Crescendo in France. Their third album, “4:45 AM” (2013) was widely acclaimed worldwide and was chosen among the best albums of that year in a number of specialized publications. “Hawaii” (July, 2016), their fourth studio album was called a “masterpiece” and named one of the albums of the year by media outlets such as Prog (England), Neoprog (France), Raw Ramp (England) and Chile’s premiere rock magazine, Rockaxis.

Chilean Prog Ensemble Aisles Premieres Third New Video “Still Alive”

For Immediate Release

Chilean Prog Ensemble Aisles Premieres Third New Video “Still Alive”

Chilean Prog ensemble Aisles, South America’s most acclaimed prog band of the last 10 years, is premiering the third video of their “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions, for the song “Still Alive”, which was originally released on their latest album “Hawaii”.

Watch Aisles new video for “Still Alive”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFfTwvl0XoM

Says Aisles guitarist, German Vergara, “ ‘Still Alive’ is one of the most representative songs, and maybe the saddest, on our latest album “Hawaii”. Capturing that feeling of hopelessness was a challenge both for the band and for the director of the video, Bernardo Quesney. Sonically, it is different from the album version because it is much less processed. What you hear is Aisles organic live sound, just like you’d hear it at one of our concerts. Even the tempo of the song changed as a result of that search”.

The “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions started with the video for the song ‘Clouds Motion’, and it will continue with more videos coming soon.

With four studio albums and a career spanning twelve years, Aisles have become South America’s most acclaimed prog act of the last decade. Their daring combination of rock, fusion, jazz and world music illustrates the band’s uniquely eclectic approach. The group has played in South America and Europe, and their albums have been released in Europe, the Americas, and Japan.

In 2009 their second album “In Sudden Walks” was nominated for Best Foreign Record in the Italian Prog Awards and the group was invited to open the 11th Progressive Rock Festival Crescendo in France.

Chilean Prog Ensemble Aisles Premieres New Video “Shallow and Daft”

Chilean Prog ensemble Aisles, South America’s most acclaimed prog band of the last 10 years, is premiering the second video of their “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions, for the song “Shallow and Daft”, which was originally released on the album “4:45 AM” (2013).

Pure Grain Audio has premiered Aisles new video for “Shallow and Daft”:http://puregrainaudio.com/videos/aisles-take-aim-at-the-shallow-and-daft-in-new-in-studio-playthrough-exclusive-premiere

Says Aisles guitarist, German Vergara, “Shallow and Daft is a song with a strong criticism to the logic behind the mass entertainment industry. We wanted to be deliberately ironic and the original version had a notoriously ’80s pop sound. When we decided to release this series of videos we thought we could make it more current with a modern, fresher sound. Additionally, we wanted to include a feminine touch so we invited the talented singer Catalina Blanco from the rock band Tephiret. We kept the message but presented it in a new form”.

The “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions started with the video for the song ‘Clouds Motion’, and it will continue with more videos coming soon.

With four studio albums and a career spanning twelve years, Aisles have become South America’s most acclaimed prog act of the last decade.

Chilean Prog ensemble Aisles, South America’s most acclaimed prog band of the last 20 years, is releasing their “Live from Estudio del Sur” sessions. The first of four videos is for the song “Clouds Motion” from Aisles’ debut studio album, “The Yearning.” Says Aisles guitarist, Germán Vergara, “The reason why we chose to record ‘Clouds Motion’ is because, even though it’s one of our oldest tunes, to this day it still represents all of us and it is one of the favorite songs of the audience that has followed us from the beginning of our career.”

Director Bernardo Quesney, renowned for his work with Chilean rock and pop artists like Gepe and Javiera Mena adds: “I had never worked with a band so meticulous in the performance of their music. Their songs are a journey, as they are not just about seeing Aisles play, but there is an actual musical conversation and a challenge between the instruments.”

Chilean Prog Ensemble Aisles To Tour US For The First Time In Support of Critically Acclaimed Album “Hawaii”

For Immediate Release

Chilean Prog Ensemble Aisles To Tour US For The First Time In Support of Critically Acclaimed Album “Hawaii”

Chile – Aisles, the acclaimed South American prog rock sextet, will tour the United States for the first time in their career to play five dates, including the festivals Progstock in Rahway, New Jersey, and Progtoberfest, in Chicago, Illinois.

Aisles will be performing part of their latest record, “Hawaii,” a two-disc concept album about human colonies established in space after the destruction of the Earth. Its twelve tracks explore the dilemmas and challenges that the individual and the human spirit would face in this futuristic scenario. Regarding the theme and sound of the album, guitarist and producer Germán Vergara states: “Without a doubt it’s our most profound work so far. With ‘Hawaii’ we dug deep in search of a concept that could really move us. Our objective was to write music that would emotionally and mentally take us to the place where the events in the album occur: Space.”

“All the music on the album was written with our hearts and minds set on the idea of these human colonies, a small group of people who are able to preserve some of the heritage of mankind after the Earth is destroyed. Musically speaking we had never taken so many risks, tried so many different approaches and allowed ourselves this level of freedom to improvise and experiment. I am really proud of what we’ve achieved this time,” Vergara adds. “Hawaii” has been acclaimed by specialized media like Prog magazine, Neoprog and All About the Rock.

“ ‘Hawaii’ is a work of genius. A mind expanding experience” – All About the Rock

“A joyous expression of individuality. One of the year’s highlights” – Prog

“A masterpiece” – Neoprog

“Symphonious, mellifluous and happily nostalgic. One of the most far-reaching and rewarding progressive albums of the year” – Raw Ramp

Aisles will tour in the United States after playing five shows in Mexico. These are the dates:

MEXICO
Sat. Aug 12, Fest Prog Jazz, Foro Fausto Vega, Mexico City
Wed Aug 16, Underground Bar, Saltillo
Thu Aug 17, Salón Morelos, Monterrey
