Arch/Matheos Announces Debut Album Title As "Sympathetic Resonance"

As was previously announced, Jim Matheos (current member of the progressive rock powerhouse Fates Warning and OSI) and John Arch (former vocalist of Fates Warning) have teamed up to form the new progressive rock band, Arch/Matheos The band - accompanied by Joey Vera on bass, Bobby Jarzombek on drums, and Frank Aresti on additional lead guitar - began tracking the drums on January 12th and continued to record through mid February with Jim Matheos producing.

Arch/Matheos has now announced "Sympathetic Resonance" as the title of the band's debut album, which will be released September 13th, 2011 in North America.

Jim Matheos offered his insight on the writing and recording process of Sympathetic Resonance: "I think John and I work really well together. There's a lot of mutual respect and trust in what we do. But, we're also both very critical of ourselves, and each other. This can make for a long and, sometimes, tedious process. But ultimately it's one I enjoy because I think it brings out the best in both of us."

John Arch added: "When I first heard some of the arrangements Jim had written and recorded, it took quite some time before I could wrap my mind around the odd time signatures and guitar work going on here. There are some long compositions, so putting anxiety and apprehension on the back burner it was time to dissect these numbers into digestible bits. After the lengthy process of lyrics and melodies, listening to the songs now, I can't imagine them any other way."

In terms of the lyrical content on Sympathetic Resonance, John Arch notes that, "the lyrics this time around are more in line with A Twist of Fate and not of the mystical nature of some past albums."

Brian Slagel is a fooking idiot for wanting to put this under the Fates Warning name. Twitter the stupid f*** on this account saying how much of a moron he really is.
