Band ‘Synapse’ on peoples minds

Victoria band Synapse is rocking out in Alberni's Rainbow Room on Friday, Sept. 23.

Emerging from the sleepy oceanfront city of Victoria on the West Coast of British Columbia, SYN{A}PSE is a band hell bent on sharing their music with the world.

Catch them live along with Atlas Collapses and Body Politic on Friday, Sept. 23 at the Rainbow Room in Port Alberni. The $8 cover includes a free game of bowling with the bands before the show.

Using a variety of musical backgrounds to their advantage, SYN{A}PSE aims to blaze a new path in the alternative/progressive/rock scene. Stylistically, they are comparable to bands such as Thrice, Coheed and Cambria, Tool and Alexisonfire.

With the help of creative chord voicings, dramatic use of dynamics, and soaring melody lines each song reaches out to the listener and brings them along for the ride.

The band was formed in the fall of 2008 with Jacob Redlin on drums, Justin D. Lee on guitar and Noah Edwards on guitar and lead vocals. James Gibson later joined on bass to complete the quartet, and the group has been writing their unique brand of music since.

Rainbow Room is located on Fourth Avenue in Port Alberni.
