The source is now working with up-and-coming visionary artist Mike Gamble who hand-painted the album art for “Emergence” with oil paint on canvas. Gamble’s style is a perfect match for Source and we see a bright future for their collaborations.

Formed in 2013 in Boulder Colorado, Source creates consciousness-based music through the exploration of flotation tanks, philosophy, meditation, yoga, and other embodiment and mindfulness practices. Their music is an expression of the sensations experienced on this planet, the profoundness of the human experience and the beauty of all that is.

Combining heavy, complex rhythms with beautiful melodies, you can hear a wide range of Source’s influences including Tool, Opeth, Mastodon, Chevelle and Between The Buried And Me.

Their debut album Return To Nothing was released in September 2016 on Pavement Entertainment and received a hugely positive response from music fans and press. Accolades included being named Metal Nexus' #1 best album of 2016 and heavy Music HQ's #9 best progressive metal album of 2016, and their video for single 'Memories of Yesterday' was supported by Axs TV, promo only, club com network and many more.

The success of the record earned them opening slots on tours with Hellyeah, In Flames, and From Ashes to New, firmly establishing them in the US rock scene. 2019 saw the band release their stunning second album Totality, which achieved top reviews with Angry Metal Guy claiming "we could be witnessing the birth of the next great progressive metal band".
Source released their third album “Ethereal Self” in 2021 which landed them more rave reviews including Prog Magazine saying “Even since 2019’s ‘Totality’ Source sound like they have grown in confidence. Ethereal Self marks them out clearly as ones to watch in their field”

Benjamin Gleason comments on the song “Emergence”: “‘Emergence’ is the sequel to ‘Pupa’, the final track on our last album ‘Ethereal Self’. It speaks to the challenges of emerging from the 2020 Covid lockdown as well as the birth of a new version of myself. This transformation left me with a newfound sense of appreciation for all the troubles and all the blessings of existence. I found myself with a deep sense of humility and gratitude for the sensation of air filling my lungs, the beauty of the world around me and the warmth of my small community. This song is about choosing to move forward in a world consumed by fear, hate and judgment.”

He also comments on Source’s first official EP release: “With our 2021 album ‘Ethereal Self’ we wanted to go a fairly different direction from our previous release ‘Totality’. While the shorter length of the songs and the album ‘Totality’ did a lot for us and still continue to serve us, we wanted to stretch our legs and really grow into our sound. Part of that meant writing long songs and a very long album. We’re extremely proud of what ‘Ethereal Self’ accomplishes and we’re very glad to have 80 minutes of polished music that we can really stand behind. As we watch the music industry shift away from full length albums we have decided to maintain our sound while still fitting in the framework of today’s music industry. This means releasing less music more frequently. The ‘Emergence EP’ is digestible and it definitely will turn some heads. It is also bound to leave listeners wanting more. We plan to release a few more EP’s over the next 2 years that will all be part of an eventual full length album. We believe this episodic style of releasing will get more listeners hooked on our sound.”

For fans of Tool, Incubus, Mastodon, Opeth and Between The Buried And Me
