Ethos is an American rock band known for their fusion of heavy rock riffs, classical piano, syncopated rhythms, and melodic vocals. Formed in 2009, the band consists of Austen Earp (vocals/piano/guitar), Kuyper Cummings (guitar/vocals), Matthew Palopoli (guitar), Nick Riggs (bass/vocals), Tribb Robison (drums) hailing from Atlanta, GA to Nashville, TN.
The group exhibits a technically rich yet accessible rock sound with roots in progressive metal, alternative rock, and post-metal. Their most recent record, Shade & Soil, has garnered attention for showcasing some of the group’s most impressive and melodic work to date. Perhaps the most elaborate example of this is the three part, “Archetype Suite,” brandishing a potent sense of orchestral theatricality by introducing characters and narratives cloaked in intriguing compositional motifs. Fearless grandeur turns to pensive stillness as Ethos explores songwriting with dynamic ferocity - and as their name suggests -demonstrates their ability to conjure a powerfully emotive and captivating listening experience.
