Instrumental Post Rock

The phrase ‘instrumental rock’ brings a few clichés to mind: layered, wall-of-sound guitars; noodling solos; excessive song lengths. The Denver-based instrumental/electronic rock band Altas avoids these clichés. Instead, Altas focuses on composing epic, tightly crafted songs with unique key changes and dynamic shifts that are galvanized with intricate electronic textures and coupled together with distinct melodic lines.  Having developed a distinct set of songs that are winding and cinematic yet tuneful and well-structured as well as performed and toured across the region, the band also developed their dynamic live show. Coupled with stadium-worthy lights and visual elements, it has become a signature aspect of their live performance. Their efforts have paid off, as Epoca de Bestias was named one of “The 31 Best Colorado Albums” by Westword.  Since then, the band has been busy making local television and radio appearances, regional live performances as well as a stop at South by Southwest and summer performances at the Westword Music Showcase and the Denver Post Underground Music Showcase.
A new album is in the works to be released in 2017 as well as tours and festival dates to in support of the release.
