When Caspian formed in 2004, they were following in the footsteps of many other incredible instrumental bands, bands such
as Black Emperor, Sigur Rós, and Explosions in the Sky. These bands wanted to give rock music a gentler, more graceful touch,
use a finer brush to paint their strokes. And what unfolded was pure rock magic, a sound that warped the genre so out of shape
it could barely be called rock anymore, but the sound was certainly no less appealing. Caspian championed this movement better
than everyone, becoming an iconic band with an epic sound and defied rules, expectations, conventions and history to chart
a bold new course for the future. With concert tickets
from StubHub, you can see Caspian live and discover a world of music with infinite possibilities!
With atmospheric touches, symphonic arrangements and epic runtimes, Caspian is a collective of incredibly dedicated and
passionate artists on a mission to reinvent music. What distinguishes the young Massachusetts group from other interlopers,
though, is their skill at chiseling music, they way they take a massive chunk of sound and artfully chip away at it until
they've landed on something beautiful. Such craftsmanship and love can only come from truly inspired artists, and everyone
who has seen Caspian perform has immediately recognized their genius. They have fashioned a brand of music that is wildly
transcendent, and with tickets from StubHub, you can be there to transcend the normal music experience with them!
Given the nature of the band and its style of music and playing, it's little wonder it's taken Caspian a few years to fully
mature. Since coming together in 2004, they have put out one EP and two double LPs, all three of which were fantastic demonstrations
of their skills and breadth of musical talents. But each went in different directions and a little unsure of its footing.
Not so on their latest album, Waking Season. This album is a marked step in Caspian's evolution and heralds a sound that shows
great cohesion and vision. Everyone who has heard it has been blown away by what Caspian has achieved, and fans are lining
up to hear them play it live, so get your tickets from StubHub to hear this hot new album live!
Like all great artists, Caspian puts music before itself, and in so doing opens itself up to any and all sounds that it
might otherwise be closed off to. On their latest album, they employ a glockenspiel, a music box, with a score the band members
punched themselves, the sound of someone smashing a car windshield and many other inventive, creative additions that round
out the band's sound to make them truly unique. They smartly layer all these adornments so as never to detract from any of
their basic melody or integrity.
Since 2006, Caspian has played more than 500 concerts, bringing their music to 30-plus countries spanning 3 continents.
That's quite an accomplishment for a band that rarely if ever sings, a clear indication their music is so widely admired and
enjoyed that lyrics aren't even necessary. Everyone who has been to a Caspian show has become hooked on the band's eclectic
sound that can only be defined as awesome. Catch Caspian fever with rock
tickets from StubHub!
