Pray for Sound is a five-piece instrumental post-rock band started by Bruce Malley in 2011. Hailing from Massachusetts, Pray for Sound originally started as a one-man project; however, after releasing the debut album, Monophonic, Chris, Nick, Joe and Steve were quickly added to the mix to bring the album to the stage.

 

The name Pray for Sound actually came from a Steven Wilson (of Porcupine Tree) song, “Harmony Korine” off his first solo album. But it seems fitting as the band was inspired by lead member Bruce Malley’s struggle with hearing loss.

Bio: In 2005, doctors discovered a destructive cyst called a cholesteatoma growing inside Bruce’s left ear. After surgical removal of the cyst and reconstruction of his ear, he was left with severe hearing loss, tinnitus, and reoccurring ear pain. These emotional experiences were translated into the music and artwork that make up Monophonic.

 

The album was mixed and masted by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, Pg.lost). The five track EP is emotionally dark, melodic and explosive, taking musical inspiration from bands like Explosions in the Sky and Russian Circles, to those outside of the post-rock genre such as Pink Floyd and The Cure.

 

Monophonic is currently available digitally via Bandcamp in a pay-what-you-want format. For those interested, a physical digipak version is also available. In addition, Pray for Sound will be supporting the release by playing Monophonic in its entirety at various venues in the Northeast.
