Blending technical, weaving instrumentations with hip-hop, jazz and R&B influenced grooves, Polyphia has created a massively impressive sound that is all their own. The Dallas, TX-based instrumental outfit has established themselves early on as a force to be reckoned with and as a band that holds a truly unimaginable amount of potential.
Their latest EP The Mast Hated was recorded with Y2K who co- produced the album with Polyphia guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage. The Most Hated introduces a new conceptual and artistic direction for the trio's sound, vibe and visual aesthetic, that sees the band embracing their aforementioned eclectic musical tastes (which include EDM, hip hop, pop and classical music) to create their own innovative fusion of technical, yet melodic instrumental arrangements.
The Most Hated is the follow up to Renaissance, the band’s sophomore full-length that has sold over 15k copies to date and which landed on several Billboard Charts including: No. 4 on Hard Rock Albums, No. 5 on Independent Albums, No. 14 on Top Rock Albums, No. 42 on Top Current Albums, and No. 103 on Top 200. Through Renaissance, the band also found early supporters in the likes of Dunlop, Ibanez and Guitar World.
The EP is a perfect example of why people all around the world turn out in droves to attend demonstrations and performances from the band. The videos on Polyphia’s YouTube routinely reach over a million views and their dynamic live show has become one of the most in-demand tickets around. Polyphia spent most of the past few months on tour with acts like Between The Buried And Me and Dance Gavin Dance as they put the finishing touches on their highly-anticipated upcoming Equal Vision Records full-length due out later this year.
