Sail West to Reach the East - set for release June 30th, 2012



COUTEAUX, (pronounced Coo-toh) is a technical and progressive Alternative/Rock band influenced by quite a few other musical genres as well, including post-hardcore, math-rock and post-rock.

Couteaux formed the summer of 2011 after the demise of the post-rock group Atheorem, and as a side-project to the bay area metal band Simoom. Vocalist Tino Molinari and drummer Linden Reed have put plenty of time and energy into their music over the last 3 years and have had plenty of great experiences with Simoom, including being hand picked (from a list of 20 Bay Area bands) by vocalist Phil Labonte to open for All That Remains and Lacuna Coil at the Grand Ballroom in San Francisco in October of 2009 as well as being the opening act at the San Francisco stop for Cruefest 2, sharing the stage with Motley Crue, Godsmack and others. Similarly, the band has also opened for National acts such as Nonpoint, Cold, Drowning Pool, Rev Theory, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Taking Dawn, Kylesa, Will Haven and American Headcharge.

Bringing all of that experience with them to Couteaux, Tino and Linden and have teamed up with Tino’s brother Nico (Molinari) and Bassist Zack Sumner to breathe new life into their project and have managed to create some truly infectious music on their forthcoming EP, “Sail West to Reach the East.” Fans of poppy melodic post hardcore and catchy anthemic choruses will find a new favorite band in Couteaux. As the band themselves put it, “With our influences combined, we can play melodic music with a punch…and also summon captain planet.”

In the meantime, Couteaux has been playing the bay area and opening up for the likes of: Assemble The Skyline, Farewell Fighter, Heartsounds, Vices, State Faults, and many more…
