Boston , MA
Boston-based Clarias is a five-piece pop/rock band whose commanding sound is ripe with praise from music enthusiasts, critics and industry professionals alike. Armed with their successful 2005 release Lines, a Boston Music Award nomination, and a commitment towards writing and performing innovative music, the group is storming stages--from dingy basement clubs to sweeping amphitheaters and imposing stadiums--with a singular goal: take no prisoners. Resistance is indeed futile in the face of Clarias’s relentless energy and charm. And with airplay on major AAA radio stations, college stations, Satellite Radio and top Boston radio station WBMX Mix 98.5FM, it’s easy to understand why “Boston’s Best Band” opens for celebrated acts like Bon Jovi, Nickleback, Barenaked Ladies, Kanye West, and Jimmy Buffet.
For their latest studio album, the band enlisted award-winning music producer, Matthew Ellard (Weezer, Wilco, Eliot Smith) and renowned mastering pro Fred Kevorkian (Willie Nelson, Iggy Pop, Dave Matthews Band), to commandeer their steadfast pursuit of musical exploration. As a result, The Days of the Getaway — recorded over the fall and winter of 2008— is true to Clarias’s contemporary and pop-rock edge. The recording amplifies the band’s sound with intricate vocal harmonies reminiscent of pop legends like the Bee Gees and multilayered arrangements in the vein of Coldplay—securing its buzz with both fans and critics.
The album’s first single WINOK is currently available for free digital download exclusively on www.clariasmusic.com
- The Days of the Getaway, set for official release in the fall of 2009, will be available at various retailers including Newbury Comics, iTunes, and CDBaby.
