PAPADOSIO—a “must-see act” on the touring and festivals circuits hailed as a “tour-de-force” by THATDROP.COM (7/10/15)—has just released their new studio album EXTRAS IN A MOVIE and launched an extensive two-month coast-to-coast headlining tour “Extras In A Movie – Act I” that will be stopping locally in CINCINNATI on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27 at BOGARTS. Tickets are currently on sale via http://papadosio.com/tour.
EXTRAS IN A MOVIE, the band’s fourth full-length studio album self-released this past Friday, October 2, features 16 never-before-heard tracks, written, recorded and produced by the band themselves, thanks in large part to their devoted fanbase and a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign. The five-piece previewed a few tracks off the album recently in anticipation of its release. The album’s first single“Glimpse of Light” premiered on MusicTimes.com (9/3) with its official music video directed by the band’s own Anthony Thogmartin; watch the video for “Glimpse of Light” here. Then, PAPADOSIO released their latest single “Epiphany” exclusively on PureVolume.com (9/15), who premiered its music video directed by band member Sam Brouse. Of the song, PureVolume.com notes, “the intricate melodies showcase the advanced sound that the band has ben evolving towards in recent years.” Watch the video for “Epiphany” here.

“Like all our albums, Extras In A Movie is a variety show of genre and timbre,” the band shares. “It is also certainly our most exploratory record to date. The end result is a very honest musical representation of our collective emotions while we were recording.”
PAPADOSIO–Anthony Thogmartin (lead vocal, guitar, production), Mike Healy (drums), Rob McConnell (bass, vocals), Billy Brouse (keys, synth, vocals) and Sam Brouse (keys, guitar, vocals)–seamlessly melds progressive rock with psychedelia; folk with electronica; and dance music with jam. The Asheville, NC-based progressive rock band has earned worldwide acclaim for their unpredictable setlists, entrancing improvisations and stunning visuals as a result of their extensive touring schedule and numerous high-profile festival appearances, including Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Sonic Bloom, and many more.
Of their shows, Owen Seely from RVAMAG.COM said, “the live experience was more than I expected. Part electronic, part jamband, part fusion, and 100% their own. Papadosio are certainly a force to be reckoned with” (11/12/12), with Sean Dorsett of SHOWSIGOTO.COM adding, “Papadosio’s light show and visuals [were] out of this world!…They have such a unique and positive energy radiating through their sound and presence. They write music that inspires love, happiness, following dreams, and being the change you want to see in the world. It’s amazing that these kinds of messages can be transmitted so sincerely through such badass music so seamlessly and apparently effortlessly” (9/16/14). In addition, Joe from MUSICOBSESSED.COM noted, “This band has a strong hold on bringing their sound in and out of consciousness, sometimes taking audience members with it, but their ability to provide thorough solos as well as bring songs down to an ambient state, matched with some great lighting, is a formula for an awesome live show. These aesthetics come out in nearly each of their grooves” (9/13/14).
