“Like all our albums, Extras In A Movie is a variety show of genre and timbre,” the band shares. “It is also certainly our most exploratory record to date. The end result is a very honest musical representation of our collective emotions while we were recording.”


Leading up to the release of the album, PAPADOSIO released two new singles–“Glimpse Of Light” and “Epiphany”–and corresponding music videos, directed and conceptualized by the band themselves. “Glimpse Of Light” first debuted on LiveForLiveMusic.com while the video was unveiled at MusicTimes.com. Meanwhile, PureVolume.com exclusively premiered the song and music video for “Epiphany” and noted, “…the intricate melodies showcase the advanced sound that the band has been evolving towards in recent years.” (9/15/15)


Hitting virtually all major and secondary U.S. music locales and select festivals across North America, PAPADOSIO launched their headlining “Extras In A Movie – Act I” tour this past Tuesday, September 29 in Urbana, IL. The band is set to perform at the Boulder Theatre in Colorado tonight, October 2 and tomorrow, October 3 in celebration of the album’s release. The massive tour runs through November with stops in Chicago, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Cleveland and Detroit. Tickets are on-sale now at http://papadosio.com/tour.


PAPADOSIOAnthony Thogmartin (lead vocal, guitar, production), Mike Healy (drums), Rob McConnell (bass, vocals), Billy Brouse (keys, synth, vocals) and Sam Brouse (keys, guitar, vocals)–seamlessly meld progressive rock with psychedelia; folk with electronica; and dance music with jam. The Asheville, NC band has earned worldwide acclaim for their unpredictable set lists, entrancing improvisations and stunning visuals as a result of their extensive touring schedule and numerous high-profile festival appearances, including Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Counterpoint, Sonic Bloom, Summer Camp and many more.


Of their shows, Dan Scheiman of OnStageReview.com raved, “The only way to fully understand the awe inspiring brilliance of this band is to experience it firsthand…It is a potentially life changing experience” (4/11/15). Elsewhere, Owen Seely from RVAmag.com said, “the live experience was more than I expected. Part electronic, part jamband, part fusion, and 100% their own. Papadosio are certainly a force to be reckoned with” (11/12/12), while ShowsIGoTo.com‘s Sean Dorsett has said, “Papadosio’s light show and visuals [were] out of this world!..They have such a unique and positive energy radiating through their sound and presence. They write music that inspires love, happiness, following dreams, and being the change you want to see in the world. It’s amazing that these kinds of messages can be transmitted so sincerely through such badass music so seamlessly and apparently effortlessly” (9/16/14).


Early media reaction for EXTRAS IN A MOVIE has been overwhelmingly positive. Here’s what’s being said:


“From the lush Four Freshmen harmonies of ‘The Last Leaf,’ Papadosio reveals a multi-hued tapestry of sonic invention…here the quintet draws from prog-rock forefathers with vocals, guitars and a pronounced backbeat prominent in the orchestral mix. ‘The Wrong Nostalgia,’ and its swipe at the market-share programming of modern radio, contrasts with the hallucinatory expression of ‘Ritual.’ The closer, ‘Moon Entendre,’ offers reassurance with the line, ‘O, this light is magic in every right.’ Indeed: Papadosio’s cinematic palette and compositional alchemy defines a band both earthy and cerebral.

–Dan Kimpel, Music Connection, September 2015


“Melding elements of psychedelia, folk, electronica and jam bands, the album never lingers in any one place for too long, but never rushes from one thing to the next. And expect the songs to spread out even further in the live setting…”

–Chris Steffen, AllMusic.com, 9/29/15


“…’Glimpse of Light’ is a beautiful downtempo piece that will spark even more anticipation in fans for the forthcoming October 2 release. The first two-thirds of the track are relaxing, with Anthony Thogmartin’s uplifting lyrics echoing over delicate effects and glitchy synth stabs. After a short dropout, a full wall of sound hits your ears with the near force of a heavy metal breakdown, coupled with trancey synth sounds. Hopefully the rest of Extras in a Movie will match the beauty and sound quality of this single.”

–Kyle Rutherford, TheUntz.com, 9/1/15


Papadosio continues to consistently impress in both the recorded and live settings, with their unique blend of progressive/psychedelic/electronica-influenced rock and roll and stunning visual displays.”

–Dave Melamed, LiveForLiveMusic.com, 8/27/15
