The praise for 3 continues to pour in from all over the place including from their musical contemporaries. See what Travis Stever, guitarist for Coheed and Cambria has to say about 3, â€œIt is hard to come by a band that combines numerous musical elements into an appealing combination. 3 is one of those bands. For their newest album The End is Begun they have created an album that shows they are truly like no other. Each member of the band is an amazing talent on their own. Together they create a sound that will blow your balls off. Enjoy!â€
â€œListening to a 3 album or watching them recreate their music live is truly mind-blowing. Be one of the lucky ones to say “I remember them before they were huge”, they are that good.â€ Howard Jones of Killswitch Engage
â€œ3 have it all! Great musicianship, funky grooves, catchy melodies….and their latest CD is my favorite yet! I dig this band so much; they were at the top of my list for the upcoming Progressive Nation tour.â€ Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater
â€œOne of the great things about having 3 open for Porcupine Tree is how much they made us raise our own game – every night their incendiary 45minute set gave us an almost impossible act to follow. Simply one of the best new live acts around.â€ Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree
“3 is so talented and different from everything else out there, plus they are awesome live. Great record, definitely in my top 5 of the year!” – Jenn Rivera Programming Coordinator Music Choice Metal
â€œ3 – The End Is Begun… Challenging, Melodic, Engaging! This is the band (and album) that can change your perceptions of what an intelligent rock band could, or should, sound like. Building on their previous releases and moving in new directions, this is the most exciting album of the year! And there is nothing else like them out there! The time is now for 3!â€ -Scott Hamilton / Programming and Operations Manager / Clear Channel Radio, Florida Keys
3 will be hitting the road next year with the â€œProgressive Nationâ€ tour which features fellow prog masters Dream Theatre and Opeth.
