"Rich, Dusky, and Full of Surprises"

"Rich, dusky, and full of surprises, The Ecstatic makes good on their name with every song. Their tunes are familiar but arrestingly new, like half-remembered dreams that always rock harder than you remember." - David Ehrlich, Director, Proposals

"Ecstatic at The Awakening"

Sometimes you take a chance booking a new band and it hits you right between the eyes like your following behind a fat kid eating candy on a roller-coaster. But then there are other times you book a new band and you get to feel like the jolly fat kid eating the candy and that is what we felt like last month booking (the) Ecstatic.

(the) Ecstatic, even though a newly formed band, is full of musicians that have gelled together quite well with a new blend of progressive rock that is emotional and even comical at times. The members were at home on the stage while engaging and energetic with the fans before, during and after the show. - Dennis Minner, Founder, Wise Men Promotions


gung ho (2010)

Listen at music.soundecstatic.com



Ecstatic is an alternative post-Rock band with Welsh folk idioms based out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Coupled with Joee Hankins's face-melting guitar (á la Hendrix) and minor bass melodies, their storytelling is rooted in love, bittersweet love, and love of watching movies where people kick zombie ass (i.e. "Blood on the Walls"). Vocalist Gethin Amoss is as smooth and resonant as a Welsh Johnny Cash - stewed in the UK but seasoned to perfection in America. Add melodic Timothy Reese's bass lines á la Dirk Lance and a tablespoon of Rey Soriano's beats á la Darren and David King to the batter. Mix. Press play. Repeat.

Ecstatic released their first EP gung ho with an innocuous image as their album art in April 2010 and are working on their next album for early 2011. They draw their inspiration from artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Radiohead, The Bad Plus, Incubus, Killswitch Engage, Tool, Mutemath, Death Cab for Cutie, Cerys Matthews, Deftones, Coldplay, Cake, and Kneebody.
