Another album reissue from Corsair, "Alpha Centauri," is scheduled for release through Shadow Kingdom Records on July 8th. Quietly arriving onto the scene in 2010, "Alpha Centauri" is Corsair's first EP and constitutes the foundation of this metal/rock band. Heavily rooted in the sounds of classic 70's rock and metal, the EP has splashes of just about every 70's band you can imagine, from Kiss, Led Zeppelin, and David Bowie to Black Sabbath.
Born out of the hot embers of Charlottesville, VA's Black Sabbath annual tribute band Mass Sabbath, Corsair formed in early 2008 with the purpose of writing progressive rock that would transcend space and time. Having endured the intensive training of of Mass Sabbath and most recently, Spinal Tap, Corsair has emerged with calloused fingers and a united, unbending will to unleash new found guitharmony powers onto the world of rock.
