Award-winning progressive rock band Gravity is excited to announce the release of their third full-length album, “The Edge of Eternity"! The 12-song CD will be available online on Tuesday, September 10th and in physical form on Friday, September 13th during the band's CD Release Party at Wilbert's, one of Cleveland's premiere live music venues. Doors open at 7 and there is no cost for admission.
“The Edge of Eternity” showcases the continued evolution of this progressive quartet, whose first two albums have received critical acclaim internationally. This is their first album to include keyboardist Vikram Shankar, who joined in 2012. According to guitarist Eric Potapenko, “These songs highlight a bunch of musical directions. New influences like Periphery and Animals as Leaders, combined with the continued influence of Dream Theater, Joe Satriani and Symphony X, have led us to create our most diverse album yet.”
Drummer Matt Kerschner continues, "We pushed ourselves to the limit and explored new ideas, whether by creating incredibly technical riffs, using complex time signatures, or adding epic and symphonic elements.”
The album was completely self-produced and engineered at the band's rehearsal space, 9.8 Studios, then mixed and mastered by Jason Vanek (vocalist/guitarist of Eternal Legacy) at Mercinary Studios. Artwork was created by bassist Brian Craft.
To accompany the album’s digital release on September 10th, Gravity will launch their first professional music video for their new single “Victorious.” Today, the band has posted a behind-the-scenes video showing the album's creation, which you can view below.

1. Moment of Chaos
