Strays formed in Denton during the fall of 2016 with guitarist Ben Copeland, bassist Spencer Jones, and drummer Ben Scott. In January 2017, they released Smoker, an eerily charged long-range single-track demo produced by Michael Briggs at Denton's Civil Recording Studio. Strays returned to Civil Recording in the Spring of 2018 and produced Ritual, a four track EP of brooding instrumentals, which cemented the band's heavy psych sound. During the last half of 2018, the band took a brief hiatus from live performances to push each other into uncharted territory once again and challenge the threshold of their abilities. Strays returned to the stage and the studio in Spring 2019 with an indelibly matured sound and increasingly intricate songs. Jones' fuzzed-out riff-heavy bass now rides amidst paralyzing drones of theremin juxtaposed to Scott's methodical pounding. Copeland's incendiary guitar both drives and vaporizes, creating cosmic soundscapes of intermission that rise unassumingly into new assaults of sound and haunting vocal narratives. TIME | DEATH | VOID | DREAM is an unholy amalgamation of song and warfare! The album is an apocalyptic experience, an emergent journey loaded with grit and undoubtedly drug induced.
