Houston Texas, United States
Simply put, there is nothing simple about Pale; they are an enigma – in name and artistry. Inspired by the poetic implication that being human pales in comparison to the luster of the spirit, this artistic interpretation suggests that, after this life, we will be restored to vibrancy. Their sound defies conventional definition and brings with it this otherworldly presence. Teeming with emotion, lush and somber in its progression, this music is for audiences hungry for a band colored with originality and ripe for a breakthrough into the mainstream. Emerging from the little known, yet thriving, Houston music scene, PALE is a brotherhood of four: Calvin Stanley (Vocals/ Guitar), Robb Moore (Guitar/Keyboard), Stephen Wesson (Bass Guitar), and Travis Middour (Drums). They’ve run the gauntlet in the music industry; from self-recording two albums to moving to LA to network, from sharing the stage with Depeche Mode, Rodger Waters and Frank Black, to having a song considered for the Twilight movie franchise, Pale has indeed “done a lot of stuff.” Aiming to be in the forefront as a different kind of band, PALE separates itself from the pack. The secret of that separation lies in Pale’s undeniable synergy -- both on and off the stage. A mix of visceral songwriting and expert musicality creates intense melodies and edgy choruses laced with screaming guitar riffs. As evidenced on the debut album HERE (2005) and the 2007 EP, MANDATORY AMBULANCE, both of which garnered positive media attention, industry approval and performance invitations, PALE has already made an impression. Back with a third album, IN THE TIME OF DANGEROUS MEN, these previous accolades foreshadowed PALE’s ascension. Filled with the epic imagery and unforgettably gorgeous scores the band is known for, the songs are as explosive as they are hypnotic and hushed.
