Convey Release Debut Album ‘City of Skin and Bone’
Alternative rock band, Convey, have released their debut album, ‘City of Skin and Bone.’ Purchase/stream here: https://smarturl.it/CoSaB. “It says a lot about Convey as a band and their future potential that they were capable of warding off the gimmicky pretentiousness that too often befalls the creativity in contemporary music,” Pure Grain Audio says of the album. “Convey successfully steers clear of these pretensions, drawing from the best of modern rock, while still pushing the envelope forward in their own way.” In support of the release, Convey is currently touring the United States with Chevelle. See below for a full list of dates. For more information on Convey, please visit: https://www.conveyofficial.com/.
Many years and miles separate where Convey stands now from when guitarist Jahan Rajabi and singer Ben Cohen met in high school and carved out their first tunes in a Boston basement. They joined up with resident Rush disciple Cory Massing at Berklee College of Music before moving westward to Los Angeles to cast the final mold for what Convey would be. It was there that they rounded out the ranks with bassist Luke Dennis and linked up with Jim Kaufman, who took a keen interest in their sleek sound.
Over the past few years, the band has become a staple of the resurgent rock scene in LA, regularly playing Bootleg Theater, Moroccan Lounge, Viper Room and The Hi Hat with acts like COUNTERFEIT, The Parlor Mob and The Blue Stones. They were also named a Top 10 artist on LA’s KROQ and played the first ever KROQ Locals Only festival with The Wrecks and Dear Boy.
The tape eventually began to roll on City of Skin and Bone in the summer of 2017, following the release of their eponymous EP and viral video hit “Speed Dial” in the fall of 2016. From the Zeppelin swagger of album opener “Devour” to the feral post-punk wail of “Terror,” each song found new teeth and venom. Even songs such as blues stomp “Crayon” to the aqueous title track lumbered to life from their distant back catalog. The ten songs that made the final track list represent not just a cathartic release of years of writing and refining but a daring stab at the future of rock.
