The Motion Sick, a band known for their Kurt Vonnegut style prose, return to the studio to tell a story of their own for the upcoming eight song EP, A History of Flight. A short story will accompany the songs with each song having its own corresponding chapter written by The Motion Sick front man, Mike Epstein, .

Amongst a backdrop of love and betrayal, A History of Flight, the first in a trilogy of concept , delves into the battle of technological advancements, in particular, aviation, to reduce human limitations while simultaneously limiting the stretch of imagination. Epstein explains, “The word ‘flight’ has two meanings – it refers to both the fantastic and glamorous ability to take to the air and the shame and fear of retreat or escape. The 1920s and 1930s marked the ‘Golden Age’ of advancements in aviation. It brought the exploration of a variety of approaches to conquering the air and set forth dreams of humanity expanding its reach to the heavens.”

Earning “Blender Breakout” for their 30 Lives video, CMJ’s Sonicbids Spotlight, and Spin’s Undiscovered Band Worth A Listen, Epstein (Guitar, Vocals), Matthew Girard (Bass), Patrick Mussari (Guitar) and Travis Richter (Drums) draw parallels to Vonnegut with lyrics ringing of social commentary.
