Recently announcing the official release of their upcoming debut ‘Inward/Outward’ on March 18th to follow up their 2010 self titled EP. Montreal, QC’s progressive rock / metal band MIRE are proud to announce they will be performing on of Quebec’s most watched music channels Musique Plus for their show Top Musique.
“Musique Plus has always crossed my mind in terms of establishing myself as a public figure, even when I wanted to become a VJ Host as a kid. I didn’t expect to be on air behind the microphone growing up, but it’s great to grow out of some stereotypes. Now I understand that every stroke of the brush gets us closer to popping up on the map in terms of people’s interest. So it’s a real honor to get invited for a live interview, and we look forward to delivering a kick-in-the-chest performance at 6pm on Friday Feb 28th. Turn up the volume on your TV.” comments vocalist JP LaChapelle.
Upcoming Show Dates:
Feb 15, 2014 – Montreal, QC – Club Soda – Show Details
Feb 28, 2014 – Montreal, QC – Live Interview & Performance at MusiquePlus – 6pm
March 20, 2014 – Montreal, QC – Underworld – Show Details
Two years in the making, Inward/Outward is a 10 track reflection of ideas flying every which way around the recording studio, ranging from cognitive science to a military stint in Afghanistan by guitarist Dave Massicotte.
“We created this with our guts and have dared to explore a less common style of metal where the music is less obvious and sometimes requires the individual to have more than one listen before being able to grasp and really appreciate every musical element,” says guitarist Massicotte of the album. “From big chunky guitar to light piano melody, every song will take you on a different journey and set of emotions.”
The band has released the first music video ‘Limitless Pt. 2’ in support of the album, which can be viewed at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQnqLxFv5oM
“Limitless Pt. 2 is about waking up from your daily grind to acknowledge the mysticism of your existence. The potential of what mankind is capable of, starts in the hands of its individual subjects – it starts with you. As the title implies, Limitless is an expression of how far you should push your ambitions in all directions to fulfill your own ideal based on your individual experience.’ says vocalist JP LaChapelle. “MIRE celebrates diversity, because slaving to fit the mold serves another. Enough of us have been sacrificed for a semblance of freedom, and to perfect it takes mad balls. Courage to confront fear every single morning, day and night, live on the edge of your seat at all times and lean forward – goad life to ‘come at you bro’. Developing your conscience allows you to stretch out the fiber of the NOW and analyse it. Establish objectives; try 10 times in different ways until you succeed. OWN YOUR DESTINY. That’s the passion we felt when we created Limitless together.”
