Seattle’s Spyn Reset have been steadily gaining momentum in the Western United States thanks to their compelling ability to “blend electro and dance music with the polyrhythmic complexity of prog metal.” – ReGen Magazine
Spyn Reset was born out of frontman / synth player YASU’s desire to meld his Japanese music background and love heavy synths lead with the math rock, prog, and grunge he grew up listening to. Written over three years, their new LP Dots was produced by the band and Geoff Ott (Queens of the Stone Age / Three Doors Down).
“High energy, full of surprises and technically gnarly to boot.” – Grateful Web
“At once structurally challenging and melodically accessible—a difficult feat.” – The Stranger
Their debut LP Objects in the Abstract, recorded as a sextet including with the addition of a saxophonist, percussionist, and organ player, is an instrumental album originally intended for soundtrack purposes. Four Dimensional Audio, the follow up release (and first with current drummer Pierson Martin) was recorded as a guitar-free quartet with Evan McPherson on bass, later evolving into switching off with guitar. Still searching for their sound, the bands direction changed one fateful day when YASU brought his Moog synth to rehearsal.
Co-writers and original founding members Michael Carney and Adam Dragland began a musical venture over a decade ago in Saratoga Springs, New York. Their initial collaboration 7 Stories Falling landed an eclectic range of opening slots with Dashboard Confessionals, Ludacris, Blue Oyster Cultand other established artists along the east coast.
After relocating to the Bay Area in 2006, the pair spent several years performing under the name Team Candy, and The First Church of the Sacred Silversexual all the while writing, recording and searching for the right musical recipe. Jesse Ray Smith had ventured from Marin to San Francisco with The Pheromones, acquired 'Gulch Alley Studios', and co-founded acclaimed blues-soul rock outfit The Bad Jones. Simultaneously, Seattle rock theater drummer John Hollis (Hedwig, Ian Moore, Gerald Collier, Burning Opera SF) headed south from the soggy, forested Northwest music scene after a residency in SF with The Burning Opera. With the addition of Hollis and Smith at Gulch Alley Studios, Gold Minor found it's completion, it's home and its form.
And so the story begins...A series of recording/filming endeavors, touring dates and long bizarre weekends followed. The debut album Bone Flowers is set to release in the following months with more travel and adventure to come.
