In a musical landscape of ever more dumbed-down songs, increasing fashion over substance, and an abundance of music devoid of breadth, thought, or craft, a new Progressive has arrived...

Originally emerging from the tough, punk and emo-crowded New Jersey music scene in early 2006, The Flight has quickly made a name for itself with music far from the 3-chord, 3 minute songs of many of its regional compatriots. Eventually moving to their current home base of Philadelphia, The Flight has played shows throughout the Northeast, sharing the stage with dozens of bands including Lostprophets, Boys Like Girls, The Aggrolites, Houston Calls, Madison, Ruder Than You, Westbound Train, Liam and Me, and A Hero From A Thousand Paces.

With members Kevin Batchelor (guitar and lead vocals), B.J. Capelli (drums and percussion), Chris Evans (keyboards and Theremin), and Patrick Hickey (bass) having played together previously in the overwrought progressive act, The Choir Invincible, it's no surprise that The Flight's sound is like taking a trip through forty years of experimental rock: from the raw, bluesy darkness of Black Sabbath; the tight, layered arrangements of Emerson, Lake and Palmer; and the lush sonic adventure of Pink Floyd, through the Indie angst of Cursive; the menacing vibe of Murder By Death; and the instrumental ferocity of The Mars Volta. It builds like Sigur Ros, it rejoices like Coldplay, it grooves like The Police...and through it all, a sound that is unequivocally The Flight. But it's not just a signature sound The Flight is cultivating - with degrees in music, education, and design among them, The Flight has created an overarching aesthetic that carries through the songs, to the album artwork, to the stage show, and beyond - mystical and dark, but not satanic or evil; warm and soulful, but refined and technical. There is youthful exhuberence, but behind it is a force of maturity that only comes with having been around the block more than a couple of times. The music breathes what this band has lived...

...And they're ready to live a lot more. With producer Jason Sexton and studio veteran Alan Douches manning the console for their self-titled debut EP, released in early 2008, The Flight is poised to grow their fanbase, expand their territory, and continue playing the music that comes from their hearts. The new Progressive is here...and it's called The Flight.
