About Adam’s Castle:
Formed in Detroit in 1999, ADAM’S CASTLE broke up for various reasons in 2004. Now, with each member living in New York, the band is back together and better than ever. At heart, ADAM’S CASTLE is the same; an instrumental trio consisting of piano (SAMI JANO), bass (ERIC ADAMS) and drums (ZACH EICHENHORN). Now armed with a heavily treated Rhodes, extra-terrestrial samples, loop pedals and other mind-altering effects, the sound of ADAM’S CASTLE is firmly set on a braver, darker and more mature course.
In an effort to capture their new, bombastic sound, the band enlisted the services of engineer/producer, Andrew Schneider (Blue Man Group, Pelican, Cave In) and recorded at his Brooklyn studio, Translator Audio. The songs on VICES smack of the irreverent ADAM’S CASTLE style but are undeniably more ambitious and textural than previous works. Much like artistic contemporaries (Russian Circles, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Battles, and Tortoise) ADAM’S CASTLE possesses a confident, uniquely identifiable voice, honed through a long history of breaking musical boundaries and countless live shows.
VICES is the first installment of a double album statement, showcasing the band’s raw and intensely kinetic capabilities. The follow-up, DAYLIGHT (spring 2011), will be the smoother, lighter chaser, culminating in a complete picture of the many moods of ADAM’S CASTLE.
