Melancoholic - LP

Released 7/1/08



"The Flood is coming and there is no escape". This lyric from The Alternative Outfit's (TAO), The Flood, pretty much sums up the power and momentum with which the group is attacking tri-state venues. TAO has conjured up a live show that gets blood boiling, hearts pumping, tear ducts swelling, and chills firing down the spines of spectators.

Furthermore, in a rare accomplishment among live performance artists today, the explosion of energy TAO creates has been captured on the full length collection "Melancholic". The album proves to lend itself to fans of rock, goth, jazz, alternative, pop, love, sex, pain, passion, music, misery, and brutal truth. Chris Sulit (songwriter/vocals/keys) teamed up with Bobby Kay (producer/bass/backup vocals/sounds) to create a record that is seemingly limitless in its diversity. It is a prime model of extravagant yet tasteful production.

Sulit's vocal styling tips its hat to the likes of Ville Valo (H.I.M.) and Daniel Victor (Neverending White Lights), but still rests firmly on his own very distinct, very versatile sound. The album has emotional ups and downs, takes energetic twists and turns, the only constant being an inexplicable character which comforts the listener as they travel through a world of eerie lullabies, angry melodic monsters, whaling lovesick creatures, and swinging oversized music staves filled with lustful eyes and tortured hearts.

Truly capturing the essence of alternative, TAO has seen the limits of the performance industry, and is coming to rip them all down.
