Three Cities has one goal: to bring the excitement back to rock ‘n’ roll! Heavily influenced by the artistic diversity of the 60s and 70s, the band aims to bring back the era’s musical staples – big hooks, fast guitar solos, swirling keyboards, pounding drums, soulful vocals – and combine them with high-energy live shows.
Their debut album For the Price of One was released in January of 2016 and features the hard rock songs Time Will Tell and Anthony’s Garage, the 60s-esque blues tracks Runnin’ To You and Need, and the prog epics Den of Remembrance, Rush On and What’s Inside. Their first live album was recorded on March 19th, 2017 at the Lafayette Theater in Lafayette, IN and will be released in September of 2017.
Here’s what people are saying about Three Cities:
“The album treads a variety of different styles, moods, oftentimes within the same song…and it is far preferable to the status quo of chuggy prog metal, with eclectic influences and a tendency to go pretty hard at times – something most of the genre tends to forget about.” – Halfbeat Magazine
“The song, Time Will Tell is a hearty synth driven rocker comfortably reminiscent of Deep Purple. The track, from their debut release For the Price of One, is a rollicking burner riding on the back of fantastically lush keyboards, nicely paired with smoking guitars and drums. The instrumentation is strong, and provides an excellent bed for soulful Lenny Kravitz-esque vocals.” – Cretin at RaRasFarm.com
“It is not metal. It is far more of a prog\rock thing. Arena, Pink Floyd, but with some “classic rock” type elements as well. It works like magic and this album has put every other disc in the queue on hold indefinitely.” – Scott B on the PMX2 Forum
“Rock with awesome vocals, shredding guitar, killer keyboard and banging drums. What more can you ask for?” – iTunes Review
“They are like a youthful mix of ELP and Meat Loaf.” – Patrick’s Roommate’s Dad
