+ Backup Planet (Nashville, TN)
[ experiemental / funk / rock ]
Rock ‘n’ roll epitomizes escapism in its purest form.
It’s not just artistic anesthetization either, but rather a galvanizing force that inspires us to keep pushing through life’s trials and tribulations. That’s why we still listen to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Rush, and countless others all these years later. It’s the same reason audiences will be talking about Backup Planet’s second full-length album, Reactions, for a long time to come.
