Without question one of the brightest lights on the American symphonic progressive rock scene, IZZ melds 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 refreshing musical sound.
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 marked the 20th Anniversary of the release of their breakout album, I Move, by releasing a special remastered edition of the album including over an hour of bonus tracks in October 2022.
IZZ released their most recent studio album Don’t Panic to critical acclaim in May 2019. Centered around the 18+ minute epic, 42, Don’t Panic revealed a fresh, new energy evidenced immediately by the title track’s driving bass and catchy hooks, the unpredictable musical twists of Age of Stars, and the instrumental tour-de-force Moment of Inertia.
IZZ is currently nearly finished recording their new studio album which will be ready for release in the first half of 2024, just in time to present parts of it on the Loreley!
