PRAY FOR SOUND - Monophonic (EP) [2012]

Pray for Sound is a Massachusetts based solo post-rock project started by Bruce Malley in 2011. After struggling to find musicians willing to take the project seriously, Bruce decided to go through with the undertaking alone. About a year later, after meticulously writing, recording and rerecording, Pray for Sound's debut album, Monophonic, will finally be released on September 25th, 2012.

Inspired by Bruce's struggle with hearing loss, Monophonic takes the listener on an emotional roller coaster. In 2005, doctors discovered a destructive cyst called a cholesteatoma growing inside Bruce's left ear. After surgical removal of the cyst and reconstruction of his ear, he was left with severe hearing loss, tinnitus, and reoccurring ear pain. These emotional experiences were translated into the music and artwork that make up Monophonic.

With mixing and mastering by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, Pg.lost), the five track EP is dark, melodic and explosive, taking musical inspiration from bands like Explosions in the Sky and Russian Circles, to those outside of the post-rock genre such as Pink Floyd and The Cure.
