Biography

Tangled Thoughts of Leavings music demands attention. Whether its through a live performance or a recording,
the music demands that the listener devote their undivided consciousness to the experience. Vocals are scarce -
but this is not background music. By way of a piano-led amalgamation of prog, post-rock, jazz, noise, metal and
classical film soundtracks, TToL have crafted their own sound: sometimes intensely heavy, relentless and epic;
at other times fragile and intricate.

TToL emerged from the shadows of the Australian live scene with the release of their 2008 EP,
Tiny Fragments and 2009 split EP with Sydneys sleepmakeswaves. While their EPs attracted attention from
reviewers and punters alike, its as an intense and fiercely engaging live act that TToL have built their reputation
in Australia. Through dozens of local headline shows, and supporting touring acts such as Australian prog
heavywieghts Karnivool and Canadian doom lords Nadja, TToL have demanded attention and amassed
a loyal following.

Tangled Thoughts of Leaving spent the first three months of 2011 recording their debut album, Deaden the Fields.
Recorded by the bands own Ron Pollard and mastered by Swedish legend Pelle Henricsson (Cult of Luna,
Refused, Poison the Well), Deaden the Fields is as emotive as it is technical; as melodic as it is abrasive.
Led by classical-inspired piano playing and incredible technical drumming, Deaden the Fields is piece of art
dripping with intensity, emotion and attention to detail. 62 minutes of progressive music across six tracks; it
demands commitment from the listener and will command an emotional response.

Tangled Thoughts of Leaving released Deaden the Fields in Australia through Firestarter Distribution - and online through BandCamp and iTunes - on
July 8 2011, followed by an Australian tour in September 2011.
