The Ascent Of Everest is an 8-piece orchestral experimental rock outfit that wants to take you on an unforgettable journey. Fluttering with delicate build ups and soaring through emotional choruses that cascade into breathtaking noisescapes juxtaposed against bizarre electronic textures, TAOE create music that surprises you with surreal sounds, progressive composition, and epic beauty. Formed in Nashville TN in the spring of 2005, AOE has released three records, toured the US and UK, and played countless shows sharing the stage with such bands as A Silver Mt. Zion, The Drift, Balmorhea, By The End of Tonight, Rasputina, Cannon Blue, Tides, Kayo Dot, Sparrows Swarm and Sing, This Will Destroy You, Giant, Bloody Panda, The Whigs, Rinoa, Lattitudes, Sons of Noel and Adrian, and Bloodiest. The band is currently planning to tour the US and Europe in support "From This Vantage" out June 1st 2010 on CD from Shelsmusic Ltd & on limited edition 180 gram colored vinyl from Futurerecordings.
“The songs communicate sentiments that simply cannot be put into words.”
- Performer Magazine
"TAOE possess a classicism that genuinely sets them apart from so many of their supposed peers"
- Rock Sound Magazine
“TAOE’s always lovely orchestral-rock tunes will break your heart if you let them; cello and violin mixed with brass and more (as well as the usual guitar/bass and drums) give them the ability to create moments of epic noise as well as the intimate, gentle swirls they do so well. This album gives you the full sweep of their abilities and shows them off brilliantly, making you want to come back for more over and over again."
