(LOS ANGELES) Brandon Boyd, front-man of the multi-platinum rock band Incubus, released the debut EP from his new project Sons of the Sea today. Entitled Compass, the four song EP is just a taste of things to come from Boyd, who’s currently in the studio working on a Sons of the Sea full length album scheduled for release this fall.
Both Compass and the full length album will be released on Avow Records and distributed by INgrooves via their artist services division, INresidence. The four-song EP is a collaboration between Boyd and producer Brendan O’Brien. As USA Today said “The tunes evoke the sounds of the Beach Boys and Harry Nilsson while still echoing Boyd’s funk-metal style, developed over 20 years as Incubus’ lead vocalist.”
“Sons of the Sea is a truly creative and musically adventurous project,” said Bryan Mead, Senior Vice President of INresidence Artist Services. “We could not ask for better partners in Brandon and his manager Steve Rennie and we look forward to an extremely productive partnership.”
Boyd’s manager Steve Rennie commented, “Although there are a lot of options for artists today, the choice for a partner in this project was very clear to Brandon and me. Bryan and his team at INgrooves offer an unparalleled distribution infrastructure coupled with the kind of knowledgeable and passionate staff that will really empower this project and take it where it needs to go.”
Sons of the Sea is already causing waves in the media. Rolling Stone debuted the first music from the project earlier this month, while USA Today just this week debuted the lyric video for “Space and Time” which can be seen HERE. Other premieres are scheduled from Mashable and Elle.com.
Sons of the Sea’s debut EP, Compass, is available now at all online retailers and streaming services.
