New album is companion piece to 2015’s ONES & ZEROS: VOLUME 1
Independent American progressive rock band 3RDegree will release the follow-up to Ones & Zeros: Volume 1 on April 30, 2018. Envisioned as a prequel (that’s still a thing right?), it is aptly titled Ones & Zeros: Volume 0. Where Volume 1 imagined a world transformed by a Technological Singularity, Volume 0 supplies the backstory nearer to present-day.
Instead of a landscape dominated by a ubiquitous corporation, the world is seen through the eyes of cybernetic
companions, ambi]ous transhumanist parents, lonely internet trolls, social-media addicts trying to expand their personal brand and elites buying acres in New Zealand to ride out the apocalypse. And in true 3RDegree fashion, this is all delivered with a healthy dose of dark humor using melodic, song-based progressive rock as the vehicle.
3RDegree are coming off a high following 2015’s Ones & Zeros: vol. 1-the final release from 10T Records.
The collection garnered the best reviews of their career including a third-place finish on Progarchives.com’s year-end list just behind Anekdoten and Steven Wilson. It also set them on a tour that included five European countries and several US states, highlighted by performances at the Summer’s End Festival (UK) and 2016’s RoSfest in Gegysburg, Pennsylvania. Their most recent appearance at the budding ProgStock Festival (NJ), featured a stage show replete with ornate video
backdrop and a Ted Talk-ish narrator purpor]ng to be from the fictious Valhalla Biotech Corporation which features large in Ones & Zeros.
