      Cycles


      Cycles epitomize the power-trio format with ripping guitar, fat bass grooves played out throughfurious slapping, and dynamic drum beats flowing over intricate tempo changes. Each member wields aunique take on their instrument that when played together, forms a truly fresh and cohesive sound.Patrick Harvey commands the guitar with speed and precision reminiscent of Jimmy Herring while usinghis loop pedal virtually as its own instrument, a skill unique only to him. Michael Wood has subtly forged adrum style that showcases his rare ability to mashup funky hip-hop beats with frenzied rock riffs and onlydisplays flashy technique when necessary while implementing the creative use of various sound-modulating drum triggers. At the heart of the band lies Tucker McClungs dominant slap-bass chops thatcaptivates audiences and pumps the musical blood through the band.The current incarnation of the ever-developing sound of Cycles reveals itself today as astaggering display of seemingly innocuous lyrics over purposeful compositions that only begin to meanmore with time. Screaming peaks and balanced grooves find their way out of the chaos of a jam whilesamples ripped from anything between Prince, Missy Elliott, Chris Farley and Mortal Kombat moviequotes (and much more) ring out in the mix adding to the multicolored blend of sound filling a room andoften standing out as comedic elements of the show. Drawing influence from artists such as Rage Againstthe Machine, J. Dilla, Primus, Weather Report, and many more, Cycles fuse an eclectic blend of genres toproduce an original sound that has become harder and harder to find. Although only a few years old,Cycles have over 250 shows under their belt with tours extending across the entire U.S. A heavy touringschedule keeps them on their toes while providing the inspiration to continue to write and always strive toplay better. Look out for their name soon on a festival schedule in your hands or a club marquee playingwith your favorite bands.
