Bio

If you look at Jim Matheos’ career, across his role at the helm of pioneering progressive metallers Fates Warning & OSI, to his appearances with Gordian Knot and Arch/Matheos, people might think they know what to expect from this guitarist. Tuesday The Sky, however, from the opening sounds of debut album ‘Drift,’ is set to change that.

The impetus for Tuesday The Sky came from a Fates Warning bonus track Matheos felt didn’t fit: “I started the first song probably about a year and a half ago, as an idea for a Fates Warning bonus track. But as we progressed with ‘Theories of Flight’ I realized it might not fit and decided to go with the all-acoustic bonus disc. This left me with a song that I really liked but didn’t know what to do with. So I started thinking about writing a few more in this style to see where it might lead.”

The resulting full-length album, ‘Drift,’ came together in the downtime between Fates Warning finishing ‘Theories of Flight’ and the beginning of the touring cycle, enabling Matheos to explore a type of atmospheric and instrumental music you might not expect of him. He comments: “With this kind of music, it’s about creating a mood and letting that sink in and develop over long periods of time.” Taking cues from artists like Brian Eno, Boards Of Canada, Explosions In The Sky and God Is An Astronaut, he explores expansive textures and ambient electronica, as well as some of the most colossal riffs he has ever produced. The album features the talents of God Is An Astronaut drummer Lloyd Hanney, OSI collaborator (and original Dream Theater keyboardist) Kevin Moore, and Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William, Lotte Kestner) who provides ethereal non-verbal vocals on two songs.
