IZZ are, without question, one of the brightest lights on the American symphonic progressive rock scene. They meld classic and modern prog influences, strong melodies, complex male-female multi-part vocal harmonies, and stirring guitar, synthesizer, bass, and double-drumming work into a familiar yet refreshing musical sound.
IZZ released their new album Don’t Panic to critical acclaim in May 2019 and followed up their release with performances at the Terra Incognita Festival in Quebec and ProgDay in North Carolina as well as live shows in New York and Los Angeles. Centered around the 18+ minute epic, 42, Don’t Panic reveals a fresh, new energy evidenced immediately by the title track’s driving bass and catchy hooks and the unpredictable musical twists of Age of Stars. Don’t Panic also features the instrumental tour-de-force of Moment of Inertia and the exquisite classical guitar piece, Six String Theory.
Since the release of their first album in 1999, IZZ has been a stalwart of the American progressive rock music scene. Combining a passion for melody with an adventurous musical spirit, IZZ has produced some of American progressive rock’s most beloved songs of the last 20 years including Coming Like Light, Star Evil Gnoma Su, Late Night Salvation and 23 Minutes of Tragedy.
IZZ will be on tour in North America supporting UK Prog Rock legends Big Big Train in May 2020.
IZZ will perform on Friday, 17th July 2020
