The members of M4 Messenger, having written, performed, and recorded music in various combinations over the last several decades, all landed on common ground in 2017. Since then the band’s sound has continued to adapt to the individual and combined writing styles of the members.
Some may remember a few of those bands, while others might not be at all familiar with Animal Bag, Color Blind, The Wake, Pinkwood Flat, Skynoceros, or other former projects.
Originally formed by Animal Bag alums, Otis and Rich Parris. Along with bassist, Tim McDonnell and drummer, Benji Rogers, the band ventured into new musical territory by blending metal and intelligent pop into an accessible, yet totally original, genre-dodging musical offering.
Live shows were infrequent, yet intense, pleasing to both Bag fans and newcomers alike.
Upon completion of the first release, Illusions of Control, and just prior to limited touring to support that record, the band was rocked by the untimely death of guitarist, Rich Parris.
The remaining members decided to continue to support the record with the help of guest musicians filling in on guitar.
In 2017, along with the addition of drummer, Rob Knox, the revamped quintet, featuring Kary Wall on guitar and Chris English Pittman on keys and guitar, began recording the follow up to 2010’s Illusions of Control.
The resulting album, God Candy, sees the five-piece group forging new paths in achieving a sound that should easily find and audience among fans of the original lineup and the uninitiated. In short, God Candy is a fresh helping of psychedelic-infused pop with an unapologetic nod to the band’s earlier, heavier sound.
