Mestis inks deal with Sumerian Records; new EP due in November

Posted by AP on 02/10/12

Animals As Leaders guitarist Javier Reyes has signed a deal with Sumerian Records for his side-project Mestis. A 5-track EP titled "Basal Ganglia" will be the first release of the deal, hitting stores on November 27th.

Reyes said the following of the project:

“Basal Ganglia is an EP that come from several places, and by places, I mean influences. I’ve always wanted to create a style of music that focused on being emotionally exploitive and technically sound, yet simple enough for the average music listener to appreciate.

Another influence was using the eight string guitar in a form that is unconventional to the ‘trends’ or independent of characteristics that are found in music styles/genres that have popularized it. Another and important reason was to create a true form of my own independent voice as an artist. To create music that expressed my personality, upbringing, emotions and musical taste.”
