Caspian is an American instrumental rock band from Beverly, Massachusetts. The band formed in Autumn of 2003 and played their first concert in August of 2004.

After releasing their debut EP You Are The Conductor (Dopamine, 2005) in late 2005, the band spent most of 2006 touring The United States and Canada and writing their debut full-length record The Four Trees (Dopamine, 2007). The Four Trees was released in the U.S. on April 10, Japan on May 2 and in Europe in July of 2008. Heavy touring in North America and Europe ensued through 2008 while the band continued work on their 2nd LP, Tertia. Tertia (Mylene Sheath/Make My Day 2009) was released in September 2009 and was supported by 2 massive European tours, a 2 month North American run in spring of 2010, and the band’s first performances in China in July of the same year. In 2010, Caspian’s US record label, The Mylene Sheath, re-issued You Are The Conductor and The Four Trees on a special 3XLP vinyl only set with new artwork and remasters of the original recordings. Currently the band has plans to tour in the autumn/winter of 2010 and continue writing their 3rd full-length album, to be released in 2012 worldwide.

Sonically Caspian draws from a broad scope of influences ranging from the ambient sophistication of Eluvium and Brian Eno to the crushing fury of art-metalists such as ISIS and Tool. Emotively, the music of Caspian shares common threads with Sigur Ros, M83 and The Appleseed Cast.

The band’s third album (and second full-length), titled Tertia was released on September 15th on the Mylene Sheathe, and was followed by a European tour.

In September 2012, they released their third full-length album, Waking Season. A week before the album’s US release, Spin.com posted a full stream of the album and called it “The Post Rock Album of the Year”. « hide
