"... the raucous execution of Constants' hard-hitting post-rock re-energized the dipping audience vibe of the now packed venue. Head banging their way through shadowy passages of shrieking guitar riffs, the rugged ensemble displayed full mastery of their instruments." - Performer Magazine


The members of Constants don’t try to do anything—they just are who they are. The songs on “The Foundation, the Machine, the Ascension ” sound mature. Focused. Effortless. After three raw, eager early releases the band has finally come into its own: Benoit—along with bassist Orion Wainer and drummer Rob Motes—has fine-tuned his band’s distinct energy and youthful ambition into a signature sound that is Constants and Constants alone.

Rigorous touring has been a key element to the development of the band’s sound and fanbase, often mistaken for a local band from the next city over because they tour through so frequently. “We bought a school bus, converted it to run on waste vegetable oil, and toured for almost a year straight.” Touring in support of their last release, "The Murder of Tom Fitzgerril".

Now, nearly three years since its conception, “The Foundation, the Machine, the Ascension ”, the new three part epic by Constants is finally complete. Partially recorded by Daryl Rabidoux (The Cancer Conspiracy, Irepress, Paulson) and mastered by Nick Zampiello (Torche, ISIS, Jesu), The album begins by exploring the highest highs and lowest lows of the artists involved. "I think this record is less abstract that other things we've done in the past. It's still out there and more of that will be explored with artwork and animations, but this time, it feels more personal - there are still elements of mysticism present, but the focus this time is on self-understanding, better song writing and - to keep it angular - our own definitions of reality."
