The best kept secret in music


"Jonesin' Austin"

"Plane of Existence (gotta love it)..." - Sharon Jones, Edge Magazine, June 2006

"Checked Out"

"Still working out of their hometown of Austin, [Plane of Existence] are making waves in the local and regional scenes with the release of their rock-tinged EP, Kinetic. The strong title track, 'Kinetic,' sets the stage for the compilation: clanging guitar riffs, steady drum beats, and hypnotic vocals."

"Powerful harmonies carry 'Escape," the final track of the offering." - Kendra Ostermeier, Soundcheck Magazine, July 2006

"Plane of Existence: Kinetic"

"...this EP from Austin's Plane of Existence is damn good. It's got great musicianship and the vocals are spot-on. I was surprised to find out that the band is all under 21. A very mature sound that fits nicely into the Austin scene beside folks like Wideawake and Vallejo (whom they've opened for recently).
All of the songs on Kinetic are well done. My personal favorite is "Eternity Tonight." It seems to be a song about being in that moment in a doomed relationship where it's make-it-or-break-up.
You can hear all of the tracks on Plane of Existence's MySpace, I'd recommend you check that out." - Sean Claes, INsite Magazine (internet extra), July 6, 2006

"Sound Bites"

"Local rock quartet Plane of Existence has been making a name for themselves, playing shows alongside Pushmonkey and Vallejo." - Jacob Payne, Daily Texan, April 25, 2006

"Straight from the Studio"

"The tracks are tight with fine musicianship and crisp vocals..."

"'In My Way,' the standout among the five songs, shows the band at its best--perfect harmonies, driving beats and heavy riffs." - Ward Lowe, Austin Monthly, June 2006

"Texas Platters"

"Radiorific" - Darcie Stevens, Austin Chronicle, May 12, 2006


Kinetic (2006)

Feeling a bit camera shy


Plane of Existence is quickly becoming the Southwest's new face of modern rock, mixing powerful guitar work with transcendent vocals and evocative rhythms.

The group was conceived in 2001, when childhood friends John Kehoe (guitar/vocals) and Jason Lockhart (bass) began writing songs together in their hometown of Austin, Texas. They solidified the lineup in late 2003 with the addition of mutual friends Dietrich Schmidt (vocals/guitar) and Zach Boston (drums). Now aged 20 and 21, the quartet is bringing their youthful energy to audiences everywhere.

In early 2006, the band completed work on their second EP, Kinetic, with producer/engineer Stuart Sullivan (Sublime, Butthole Surfers). The disc has been an instant hit, with the following radio adds so far: Track 4, "In My Way," has been getting spins on Austin's KLBJ FM, while the title track is in rotation on 107.5 FM in Queensland, Australia, and on The Top 5 and Spin 180, two nationally syndicated Chritstian rock radio shows.

In recent performances, Plane of Existence has shared the stage with Vallejo, Bob Schneider, Monte Montgomery, Soulhat, Pushmonkey, Wideawake, and South FM. Their influences include everything from Hoobastank to Jeff Buckley to A Perfect Circle.
