The 5 piece Within Reach from Fontana, CA is preparing to release their 2nd EP "The Art Of Skepticism" on November 6th.
I was able to catch up with guitarist Junior Jacobs and discuss the new album:
How long have you guys been working on this album?
"We have been working on this for years. It feels like our sound is finally in the place we had always wanted it to be. The first album was a tester and very rushed, where this one we took our time with. This is our new formula."
You guys have been through a few lineups in terms of member, how is the synergy with the band these days?
" Its good man. Really good. We are all really excited about the new music and our label has been awesome. They really keep a fire under our ass to keep going. Also, the addition to Alec has been great. He brings a very different style to our music, from riffs to breakdowns. It is probably because he is younger than us, but also because Carlos and I have been playing together since the 7th grade. We needed some new blood."
When are you guys heading out on tour?
"The Southwest Conquest tour starts November, 7th. We are looking forward to hitting a couple states we have never toured before. Texas in particular. We only have one show there and may go back later. Looking forward to playing our new stuff and seeing some new people. Always good times."
I could go on and on about how great this band is, but go check them out for yourself. You can pick their album "The Art of Skepticism" up on iTunes November, 6th. Below is link to their early release, titled "Beetlejuice."
