Formed within the chaotic miasma of the pandemic, Anastatica is a psychedelic, progressive rock project born from a multifaceted need; to serve as a channel for anxious energies, to evocate self-expression and to represent the reinvention of the self. Prepare for ascension with spacey riffs, layered soundscapes, and trippy pedal effects punctuated by emotive, lyrical guitar solos.
In October 2020, Anastatica released its debut EP titled Empyrean; a euphonic blending of psychedelia, blues, jazz, and progressive rock that forms a soundtrack fit for any cosmonaut's journeys. Praised for having "amazing instrumentation" with "great cinematic feel" and "big heavy rocking and prog influenced jam", the six song concept album has found moderate success in its first weeks in spite of Anastatica being unknown and unsigned resulting in Anastatica being selected as one of ReverbNation's "Emerging Rock Artists".
Empyrean is currently available on all major streaming services. Following the release of Empyrean, Anastatica returned to studio to work on a forthcoming album planned for release in late 2022.
