Philadelphia's Brothers Past is rapidly emerging as one of the most talked about independent acts in the nation. The foursome continues to not only capture the imagination of concertgoers, but distinguish themselves with masterful studio work. This Feeling's Called Goodbye, released at a sold-out Bowery Ballroom in late February 05, has the band partnering with a top Producer and the results are generating accolades. Glide Magazine wrote, "Brothers Past focuses on the art of songwriting and does it in a unique way that sets them apart from the pack. When you combine strong, well-written, catchy songs like "State Police" and "Simple Gift of Man" with electronica laden powerhouses like "Celebrity" and "Words Like Weapons",you get a detailed glimpse into the future of music."

With progressive musical visions, Brothers Past pushes the boundaries of rock. Experimenting with mood, tone and effects, the members create evolutionary soundscapes, splashed with elements of modern rock, electronica and dance music. The NY Press hailed the band as "the square-jawed, bastard child of Pink Floyd with a gigantic stage show." Brothers Past's emphasis on song craft, creative arrangements and inspired lyrics is propelling the band towards an exciting future. - HomeGrown Music


Finally sunshine! After four long days I was thrilled by the presence of the sun, which made the afternoon sets much more enjoyable. Bouncing around between the three stages, I caught the tail ends of Brothers Past, New Monsoon and 56 Hope Road before taking a breather with The Wood Brothers mid-afternoon set. Laughing as the two brothers talked about their "pigmentally challenged" skin and the importance of a strong sun block, I hung around long enough to hear a swinging version of the Beatles' "Fixing a Hole." - JamBase

Bio

Philadelphia's Brothers Past is emerging as one of the most talked about independent acts in the nation. The band conjures a new energetic sound, merging rock anthems with electronic exploration. Brothers Past has gained a reputation as a thunderous live act with an ever-growing repertoire of songs and sounds. Recently, the New York Press called Brothers Past, "the square-jawed, bastard child of Pink Floyd with a gigantic stage show." Playing over 650 performances since 2000, the band brings their futuristic brand of improvisation to create concerts that seamlessly weave dance segments between their large and varied catalog of active songs. Consistent sell-outs of premiere venues in New York and other northeast cities, along with many near capacity shows throughout the country, attest to the band's rising popularity and momentum.
Past work includes the September 2004 five-song EP, statEPolice, which Chicago's Innerview called "Delicious." December 2002's A Wonderful Day, a concept album about insomnia and paranoia was deemed "Excellent, eccentric, engrossing" by the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Philadelphia Daily News wrote, "This group jumps out as something special on its futuristic concept album." In December 2001, the band conceived Elements, an experimental studio album mixing live recordings with computer sequences to produce an altogether new sonic tapestry. Richard Gehr of the Village Voice exclaimed, "Elements has style. It's one of the first great post-Phish trance-fusion albums and sounds like Pink Floyd jamming with Sasha and Digweed in Brian Eno's bedroom."
