Avantist ready Terasoma EP for No Trend, tour (2018)

Avantist’s new Terasoma EP drops on June 22 through No Trend Records.
An avantist by definition is to be an avant-gardist; to emphasize, practice, and celebrate experimental and unorthodox methods and techniques, and to incorporate this into a craft. By definition, Avantist’s name and music aptly fit the term. Comprised of four Hispanic brothers from the South side of Chicago, the Arias family made sure to instill a knowledge and understanding of their culture and heritage that runs deep to this day. A strong tie in family values is one example of these traditions, making for the unshakeable bond they share today. The brothers in Avantist have dedicated the last decade of their lives making music that proves to fully live up to this idea of the avant-garde. Their music revolves around the philosophy that art is and should be progressive, dynamic, and unconventional, and that creativity is something to incorporate into every single aspect of life.
The making of Terasoma also saw Avantist step out of their comfort zone; in contrast to the two years they spent on their debut album, within the span of a month, the band forced themselves to shape, write, record, mix, and master the EP with the help of long-time friend and producer Yuki Tasaka. In an unfamiliar work process with a set goal in mind, the brothers were energized and unflinching in their creation. As hard-hitting as ever, Avantist has made a successor that is as every bit raucous and infectious as their previous release, resulting in three songs that run the gamut of post-rock viciousness to melodic harmonies with a hint of R&B.
