CANYONS OF STATIC
A band from West Bend, WI, formed in 2005. Featuring husband and wife guitarist Ross
Severson and keyboardist Aggie Severson along with bassist Chris Biertzer and drummer
Nathan Gaffney. Canyons of Static is an instrumental quartet that blends the distorted
melodies of shoegaze with the intensely emotional aspects of post-rock. With no central
songwriter, the music evolves from a collective process of experimentation challenging
the boundaries and forms of traditional rock music. They self-released two ep’s in 2006
and their first full-length album, The Disappearance, in 2008. Canyons of Static continues
to grow their audience through a dynamic live show. Performances feature homemade abstract
films projected onto multiple screens creating a unique experience of sight and
Canyons update: The band has recently split up, for now. Here is the note to their fans from their FB page:
"Tomorrow night marks the final canyons of static show...thanks to everyone who has come out to our shows and bought our records and everyone one we have encountered in the last 7 years. we have made some unforgettable friends. we are putting to rest the instrumental music and working on a new band with Aggie as the singer. Expect to hear from us again in 2013..."
Canyons Of Static is a special band and we are proud to have had the opportunity to work with them. We wish the best for the music and people who put so much into it. Most of all, we cannot wait to hear what is next for these amazing musicians!
