SPHAERA – a solo album

All is quiet on the High Dials front – band members pursue different projects but still meet up for beverages and comeback plans. A new album is promised. Stay zen and watch this space for an announcement, we hope soon.

Meanwhile, Trevor has quietly released a first solo record  – available on all digital platforms. Titled “Sphaera – Music From the Film Let There Be Light”, it features bits of the score to the aforementioned documentary but is also a concept record in its own right, “a kind of romantic space opera about the heavenly bodies – stars, planets and such, and the feelings of love and terror we feel beneath them.”

The album features moody balladry interspersed with mellotron-heavy orchestral suites, many of which feature in the Eye Steel Film documentary “Let There Be Light”.

Taking cues from romantic torch songs, John Barry, Hammer horror, old sci-fi and erotic scores in combination with the first-wave electronica of bands like Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd – “Sphaera” is an immersive psychedelic meditation.

“Let There Be Light” is an Eye Steel Film documentary about attempts to recreate the sun on earth for fusion energy. It has featured in festivals worldwide since its spring 2017 release, including SXSW, Hot Docs and Docs Barcelona, winning the Artistic Vision Award at Big Sky Festival.

In the A.M. Wilds – Out Now

The High Dials’ latest long-player – “In the A.M. Wilds” is available everywhere as of today. Have a listen and then click over to iTunes or Bandcamp as fast as your mouse will carry you!

The album is charting on CBC and Canadian campus radio and enjoying a positive press buzz in Canada from the likes of Exclaim!, Quick Before It Melts and Gray Owl Point.

The band has announced they will be supporting Sam Roberts Band on two dates – Toronto, Feb 14 (Massey Hall – sold out) and Montreal, March 7 (Metropolis).

Song premiere – “On Again, Off Again”

Music Blog Quick Before It Melts premiered a new track from “In the A.M. Wilds” today – “On Again, Off Again”, which you may remember from the band’s in-studio videos posted on Pledge Music.

According to Trevor, “The song was built with an old drum machine, a live performance and some phone software. Our favourite part was the vintage ‘Fun Machine’ keyboard which they have at Troublemakers Studio. Lots of 12-string guitar in the arrangement too!”

Desert Tribe EP – Out Now

The High Dials announced their follow up to 2013′s “Yestergraves” today via Exclaim! The “Desert Tribe” EP is available via Bandcamp, iTunes and most major digital outlets.

The new EP features the title track plus 2 exclusive B-sides and 2 remixes.

Musically it begins following in the footsteps of its predecessor before veering off into exciting new places where there are no High Dials footsteps at all.

For longtime fans, the new music should surprise as thoroughly as last year’s did and it offers a tantalizing glimpse of what we might expect on the long-awaited new album.

The Desert Tribe EP is a free download when you pre-order the album on Pledge.
