Merging wide-ranging song craft with magic, mystery, and magnificently realized
ambition, THE GAMA SENNIN arrives with a striking breadth of vision that immediately
places them among contemporary psychedelic rock's most beguiling and inventive new
artists. The brainchild of frontman Kevin McGuire, the California-based band fuses
alternative energy, psychedelia, expansive desert grooves, and spaced-out prog into
a pulse-pounding, mind-bending original sound, simultaneously capable of both
transcendent power and searing emotional range. It is 21st century psychedelic
rock without boundaries or limits, simultaneously exalting the genre's kaleidoscopic
past while propelling it ever further into the future. The album seamlessly traverses
what McGuire explains as "the journey into madness, into the darkness, into the
descent that is the destruction of your ego" before ultimately arriving at "a new
dawn, the push through the darkness to the final shedding of skin to become this
better version of [one]self." To create THE GAMA SENNIN, McGuire was aided and
abetted by an all-star cast including GRAMMY winning engineer/producer Peter Franco
(Daft Punk), bassist John Avila (Oingo Boingo), drummer Adam Maples (Earthlings
/Sea Hags), guitarist Dimitri Coats (OFF!/Burning Brides), GRAMMY nominated keyboard
player Chris Caswell (Daft Punk/The Muppets), and a special appearance by David
Catching (QOTSA/The Desert Sessions). The result: an elaborate 10-song suite of
exceptional psychedelic adventurism. Presented in three movements inspired in part
by Brian DePalma's 1974 classic Phantom of the Paradise and Nietzsche's Beyond Good
and Evil.
