TERRAЯIUM is at once a reflection and a realisation - the band spent two years crafting an album that would draw upon their individual and collective experiences during the time. The album is a blossoming of artistic purpose, the fruit of soul-searching metamorphoses - the planted seed fully grown. And along with it, a new sound that promises to take listeners on an aural head-trip to the proverbial moon and back.
Of the 10-track album,“Hephaestus” and “Sun” are currently in rotation and garnering their share of critical attention and plaudits. Outlets like Stereofox, FAME Magazine, Sphere of Hip Hop, FMS Mag, Mystic Sons and more (expanded press quotes below) have already noted the band’s unique jazz-soul stylings and pleasantly warm sounds. Having completed a recent circuit of major iconic festivals in 2016/2017 - like Japan’s Summersonic, Indonesia’s Java Jazz, Korea’s JARASUM Jazz Festival, the Singapore International Jazz Festival and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival - The Steve McQueens are ready to unleash the highly-anticipated sounds of TERRAЯIUM to the world.
Accompanying the new album will be The Steve McQueens' first multi-city Japan tour from 17 to 24 October 2017. The Steve McQueens will be making appearances in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Yokohama.
" A listen to first single, ‘Hephaestus’, is evidence of how much they’ve grown artistically; a fresh, yet familiar, offshoot from their existing body of work." - BURO.
