Guitarist Matt Aasen comments:

“Dan and I had a blast with this playthrough! I’m so excited to have an opportunity to showcase some of the guitar work from ‘Egressor’. Since we have six members, sometimes it can be hard to focus on the individual parts of our songs – especially when each of us is playing something different! Armature is the best example of the kind of musicianship you should expect from the rest of Egressor.”

In additional news, the band will be performing at this year’s Beaver Fest in Valley View, AB on August 29th alongside Protest The Hero, Silverstein, Comeback Kid and many more. For more info, please visit the following link:

Taking their name from a Clive Barker short story and shifting gears from jazz (which most of the members studied at Vancouver Island University) to progressive metal, the band combine poly-metric grooves, aggressive screams and soaring vocal melodies to push the boundaries of modern metal music with technically impressive musicianship to follow up their 2011 debut album ‘All Too Human’ (also available for free download at the following link Their emotionally charged songs incorporate an element of playfulness that has lead THE BODY POLITIC to stand out in a vast metal crowd and to perform opening slots for Tesseract, Protest The Hero and Scale The Summit plus multiple Western Canadian tours with their evolution.
