bandcamp | facebook Founded: 2011 Hometown: Washington, DC Genre: Progressive Metal | Progressive Rock | Post-Metal Contact | Bookings: [email protected] Like Prog? Like Metal? This is the band for you. Don't like prog? Don't like metal? That's okay. Still the band for you. Wings Denied strive to be a figure of balance, with the de-tuned riffs of djent, the atmosphere of neo-prog, and the time-signature modulation of progressive rock and metal, while still maintaining a focused and melodic centric base of coherent songwriting. WINGS DENIED became a cohesive unit in February 2012. Three months later, the band self-released the Awake EP and ran out of free Bandcamp downloads, being downloaded 200 times in less than 24 hours. After releasing their first EP, the band embarked on a 14-day East Coast tour, co-headlining with Canadian progressive trio The Isosceles Project. The Awake EP was well-received, and was called “truly progressive in a landscape of music where progressive is becoming a dirty word.” Other critics praised the band’s “organic sound” and “[ability] to stand out from the ocean of copycats.” After embarking on another five-day tour in January 2013, WINGS DENIED released The Split EP with North Carolina’s As Oceans, followed by a 30-day headlining tour supported by Philadelphia’s A Minor Error. Immediately after this tour, WINGS DENIED enlisted renowned producer/engineer Jamie King (Between The Buried and Me, Scale The Summit, The Human Abstract) to record their first full-length LP. Influences include TesseracT, Animals as Leaders, Deftones, Scale the Summit, Cloudkicker, Karnivool, Meshuggah, Periphery, Monuments, Cynic, Devin Townsend, Uneven Structure, Vildhjarta, and many more....
