Schemata Theory Premieres New Music Video

The new Schemata Theory EP titled "Networks" officially drops today - June 24th - and can be picked up at the U.K. group''s official website here.

With the EP out now, Schemata Theory has teamed up with us to exclusively premiere a new music video for closing track "Horror Show." Check out the trippy performance vid below.

Vocalist Myles Dyer also comments on the track:

"Human civilization is currently threatened by many global issues, causing our traditional political and economic systems to come under immense pressure. This has in turn fuelled a great sense of frustration, anger, distrust and despair among much of the world’s population, creating societal divisions internationally. Technology has improved our awareness of what is wrong with the world, but it has also enhanced our ability to communicate and empathise with others far & wide.

"'Horror Show' represents that moment in life many of us have experienced, where we realize the severity and scale of these issues we face as a species, and thus worry about what can be done to resolve them. It is easy to feel powerless as individuals, but if we utilize technology on an industrial scale that empowers collaboration and unity, we can turn this all around."

The "Networks" EP's track listing is as follows:

1. Our Only Home
2. New Vision
3. Horror Show More...

Schemata Theory Releasing New EP

It’s been nearly two years since Reading metal quintet Schemata Theory released any new material. Over the past eighteen Schemata Theory found itself on an unexpected transitional period, after the group's primary instrumental songwriter decided to leave in 2014.

Since then it was a case of going back to the drawing board for the quintet, re-establishing what they wanted to be/do and create.

“The music is now written by different people and is therefore a slightly different flavour to that of the older Schemata Theory releases,” explains guitarist Huw Roch, “The music is less technically minded and is more focused around the vocals/overall feel of the song. It is still a recognizable Schemata Theory sound however and we hope those who hear it will enjoy it as much as we did making it. We didn’t want to rush this process but now we feel the time is right for to us to say we’re back in the game!”

New EP "Networks" will be released directly by the band on June 24th, 2016 and will feature the following track listing:

1. Our Only Home
2. New Vision
3. Horror Show More...

Schemata Theory Splits With Bassist

Bass player Carl from U.K. metal band Schemata Theory has issued the following announcement about leaving the group:

"Sad to announce that I have decided to part ways with the band. This band, in one form or another has been a massive part of my life for the last 10 years, however it is now time for me to move on.

"There is no one reason I can give for this decision, other than to cite changes in personal circumstances and differing opinions in the direction of the band. I can't say what this means for the future for Schemata Theory but I wish them the best of luck.

"Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 10 years from our beginnings as Down Within to our most recent release. Thanks to anyone who came to any of shows over that time, bought any of our CDs or shirts, or took the time to listen to us, share our music with friends, leave us a comment on here, or twitter, on one of videos on YouTube, or even MySpace back in the day!

"The positive responses we've received over this time has been overwhelming and I'm incredibly grateful that I can leave now with my head held high, proud of everything we've achieved through the years." More...

Schemata Theory Streaming Full New Album

"Dry Lung Rhetoric," the debut album from Reading metal band Schemata Theory has been made available to stream for free via YouTube. Check out the album through the playlist below or over at the band's YouTube page here.

“One of the goals of releasing the album like this,” vocalist Myles Dyer explains, “is to demonstrate a new way of marketing music in these ever-changing digital times. Many bands are constantly criticizing piracy, and how it is killing off the industry. My belief is that it is only killing off those not willing to adapt."

To celebrate the release the band has made available 100 limited edition bundles to buy via the Schemata website. This includes a signed album, limited edition t-shirt, signed insert with a limited number of 1-100, as well as exclusive stickers, badges and plectrums. The album is now available to purchase digitally on Audiosocket, Amazon and iTunes, and can also be streamed for free on Spotify.

“The album's themes communicate acknowledgement of a sleeping world needing to wake up,” explains psychology graduate Myles. “With so much evidently in crisis on this planet, the question that must be asked is 'How much longer can we go on turning a blind eye?'” More...
