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, â€œThe word â€˜flightâ€™ 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 â€˜Golden Ageâ€™ 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.â€
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.
