Album: Diagnosis: Schizophrenia
genre/s: progressive metal, experimental, instrumental
Release Date: Out Now
FFO: Animals As Leaders, Russian Circles, The Dillinger Escape Plan

Perhaps the best 2-piece effort in recent memory as (9-string guitarist) Joseph A. Peragine teams up with renowned drummer Chris Pennie (Dillinger Escape Plan, Coheed & Cambria, The Armed) for an exceptional release aptly dubbed, Diagnosis: Schizophrenia. Musician and artist Joseph A. Peragine has long documented and made public his living with schizophrenia and the many subsequent trials, tribulations, and triumphs that have ensued. The music speaks volumes to this unique and no doubt challenging perspective that has also laid the foundation for some incredible artistic production. Chris Pennie fills out the music like only he can, with laser-sharp polyrhythmic drumming at speeds inaccessible to most of his peers. Fingers crossed we may see a live outing with these two talents together.
