BUTLER — Audio Insight, a three-piece progressive rock band from Woodbridge, will celebrate the release of their debut album “Dimensions” with a concert at Architekt Live on Saturday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. With the album’s release, the band will introduce their progressive sound to the Northern New Jersey music scene. Opening for Audio Insight will be local rock bands Lost Blue and White Noise.
Audio Insight is Anthony Celi (guitar/vocals), Michael Deverin (bass) and Dan Sullivan (drums/percussion).
The band’s debut full-length album “Dimensions” includes eight tracks of original music complete with lyrics and the quintessential instrumental. Recorded at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, the album is a culmination of over two years of writing, practicing and performing. Prior to the release of “Dimensions,” Audio Insight traveled the Central New Jersey circuit, playing venues including The Crossroads, The Court Tavern and The Saint.
“The music I write is my life,” Celi says. “I try and make it as elaborate as possible; to the point where not only does it tell a story though lyrics and notes, but where it lives, breathes and hopefully, makes you feel.”
The members of Audio Insight started their journey towards an album jamming in a friend’s basement; and are still freshman in college. And, they taught themselves how to play.
Sullivan is studying at Ramapo College while his band mates Celi and Deverin study at Montclair State University. Hitting the books by day and finishing homework at night, the guys from Audio Insight spend their spare time playing local shows and cultivating dreams of making it big.
“A genre that gives musicians the freedom to write, I love progressive rock because it is far from conventional,” Sullivan says. “This band has grown so much in the past year and our writing continues to mature with it.”
Recently, the band was featured in the Oct. 13 issue of The Aquarian Weekly, New Jersey’s oldest alt-weekly. In his North Jersey News column, Tim Louie says, “Audio Insight blew my mind. I listened to one of the unmixed songs off their MySpace and they sounded like a four or five piece band. They are here to make a statement.”
Located at One Boonton Avenue in Butler, Architekt Live is Northern New Jersey’s newest performance venue. Having celebrated their grand opening weekend on Oct. 15, the venue offers bands a chance to perform their music in an intimate setting with state-of–the-art equipment. Audio Insight will be the first band to release their album there.
“The trio plays with fire and there’s no shutting these guys off,” Architekt Live co-owner George Roskos says. “If the first two tracks recently released off of Dimensions are any indication, this record is going to be a monster. They’re doing it right, that’s for sure.”
Although tickets can be purchased at the door for $12, it is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance due to limited capacity.
