With a brand of emotional, progressive hard rock/ metal not quite like anything else out there, Iris Divine is prepared to introduce its infectious sound to the world via the new record KARMA SOWN.

The band is a three-piece at heart, musically rooted in the raw energy and rhythmic interplay of Rush and King's X. Fans of dark, guitar-driven rock bands from Alice In Chains, Deftones to the contemporary metal riffing of Lamb of God and Pantera, will connect to the heavy core of Iris Divine's sound. Add to that progressive complexity and moody synths inspired by Dream Theater and Porcupine Tree, and a liberal dose of memorable hooks and melodies, to understand some elements of Iris Divine's sound. And yet, the band has a distinct identity, not quite sounding like any of the aforementioned bands, and with an emotional urgency that pulls subtly from alternative and other influences.

Hailing from northern Virginia, USA, the band has opened for such acts as Katatonia, Orphaned Land, Fates Warning, and Periphery, channeling its studio output into intense, passionate live performances that balance precision with in-the-moment catharsis. Often called a "musician's band", Iris Divine has time and again earned the respect of its regional peers, and could well become new faces gaining prominence among the musician community on a wider scale.

KARMA SOWN is a triumph of a debut album, immediate and memorable but revealing layers and depth upon repeated listens.

With the potential to make a connection to a wide range of prog, rock and metal nationally and internationally, Iris Divine looks to 2015 and beyond to bring a new and powerful voice to fans around the world.
