Houston-based progressive instrumetalists, SCALE THE SUMMIT, have premiered a track from their upcoming album, “The Collective,” exclusively at METAL SUCKS. The track, entitled, “Whales,” can be heard here now: http://ht.ly/3PMaH

Guitarist Chris Letchford commented:
“We’re all very proud to be releasing a new song and not only just any but our personal favorite from the record, ‘Whales.’ This song was already all of ours personal favorite during the final stages of writing ‘The Collective.’ We felt this song was a great first release since it has a little of everything; melodic, aggression, great solos, clean jazzy vibe, and a very chill outro.

Hope a lot of you out there really enjoy it and that it gets you guys even more excited for the release of “The Collective!”   “The Collective” was recorded at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, FL with producer Mark Lewis (Devildriver, All That Remains, The Black Dahlia Murder). The standard CD is available now for pre-order, as is a signed booklet version bundled with a high quality, limited edition, American Apparel shirt.

SCALE THE SUMMIT formed in 2005 while attending the Musicians’ Institute in Los Angeles. The band relocated to Texas in 2006, where they recorded their first, self-released album. After signing with Prosthetic, they released “Carving Desert Canyons”, which Revolver called, “a cinematic blast of intricately melodic fretwork and pummeling percussion,” in 2009.   The band, who received praise from Guitar World for their “tightly-woven guitar interplay, irregular time signatures and tasteful licks,” has toured with the likes of PROTEST THE HERO, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, CYNIC, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and were handpicked by DREAM THEATER to participate in the 2009 installment of their famed “Progressive Nation” festival tour. SCALE THE SUMMIT has also been featured prominently in Guitar Player magazine, and has tracks available for the Rock Band video game through the Rock Band Network.
