“In the digital age, there is a new band on the radar every week, and it’s hard to find anything that stands out. But in a pool of up-and-coming bands that blend together, Spaceface has fused psychedelic rock ‘n roll with pop in a way that makes them – dare it be said – unique.
But it isn’t just bassist Matt Strong and drummer Victor Quinn Hill’s groovy rhythm section, Eric Martin’s washed out guitars, Jake Ingalls’ trippy vocals or Peter Armstrong’s spacey keyboards that will pull you in. When Spaceface loads in for a show, they don’t just bring their gear. The band carries an extravagant light show to every gig, and when they take the stage, the guitarists have lasers attached to the necks of their instruments. A sixth member, Daniel Quinlan, operates hundreds of multi-colored bulbs, lasers, LED rope lights and whatever else the band can get their hands on from side stage. A Spaceface show is as much a production as it is a performance. The band has stolen the light show typical of an arena rock act and made it their own in hopes that they can give showgoers…
Entering our atmosphere from the far-out realms of Memphis, Tennessee, Spaceface brings with them psychedelic rock n’ roll set against an enveloping light show experience. Spaced-out keys, glam-pop accents, deep and dizzying jams, and tripped-out lyrics show us their intergalactic mission: Spaceface came to party.
Frontman Jake Ingalls currently plays floorsynth and guitar for psych-rock juggernauts The Flaming Lips, having also toured with Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. Inspired by the Lips and their frontman, Wayne Coyne, since he was a kid, Ingalls adopts a similar style for Spaceface, putting on concerts “more DIY than the Lips’ live show,” he recently commented on May 8th’s interview with The Audiovore on Birmingham Mountain Radio.
