The Breakfast: Live Album/Tour


The Breakfast
New Haven, CT's progressive shredders The Breakfast just released their second live album, Live As Is, on Saturday, September 12. The brand new record chronicles the band's performance at The Field in Bridgeport, CT on February 28, 2009, and will be available FOR DOWNLOAD ONLY through the band's website: The Breakfast celebrated the new album with a day-of-release show at The Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY and will tour the Northeast through the remainder of 2009 promoting the new disc.

The Breakfast is a hard-hitting jazz rock experimental quartet whose music ranges from progressive rock to sonic landscapes. Since the group's inception 11 years ago the band has played over 1000 shows throughout the country and has now released seven albums to date. The Breakfast's sound and energy are founded in the psychedelic but their music features some incredibly well-crafted song structures and melodies, showing the members' gifts as highly talented musicians. Indeed, original members Tim Palmieri (guitar) and Adrian Tromantano (drums) provide the distinguishing characteristics the band has thrived on from the beginning. The two are able to reach near-telepathic communication onstage, ripping through progressive shredding licks and jams without missing a beat. This is held together by the sonic glue of longtime, though newly re-added, keyboardist Jordan Giangreco, and supported from beneath by the jazz sensibilities of bassist Chris DeAngelis.
