SUSPYRE: New Video Interview Posted Online

September 29, 2009

Shueh-li Ong, founder of internationally renowned electronic group XENOVIBES, recently conducted an interview with New Jersey progressive metallers SUSPYRE. The chat, which can be viewed below, was conducted as research for the article entitled "Age of Aquarius (Renaissance Raising)", written by Shueh-li for the Singapore news site SonicFreakz.

SUSPYRE performed at this year's ProgPower USA festival. The band, who parted ways with co-founder/guitarist Rich Skibinsky in January, was joined by Sam Bhoot on bass guitar, while current band member Andrew Distabile performed on guitar. The lineup was rounded out by Clay Barton (vocals),Gabe Marshall (drums),Gregg Rossetti (guitars/saxophone),and April Sese (keyboards).

"Since my main instrument is guitar, it seemed like the natural thing to do to now play guitar for SUSPYRE, and find a replacement bassist. I learned bass just to join SUSPYRE in 2006," said Andrew Distabile.

SUSPYRE released its third album, "When Time Fades…", on September 30, 2008 through Sensory Records. The band also performed at the ProgPower Europe festival in October 2008. They are now booking for 2010 festivals and tours.
