Obsidian Throw It Back with Their Latest, ‘XV’


70’s Inspired Rock for a Modern World


San Clemente, California – April 11, 2016 – The men who make up Obsidian have pasts made up of a variety of sounds, but they came together to form a band that took a page out of the past, tossed in a raw element and resulted in an eclectic mass of rock. Their album, XV, was recorded in one take, song after song with no breaks, no effects minus a bit on guitar, just a few men and their instruments taking on their craft with precision.

Cole and Reggie came up together in the Orange County scene back in the 80’s and after they connected with Brad, their sound transformed from what was popular at the time, New Wave, to a more substance filled rock. Meeting in the halls of their high school, their love of music was undeniable – no matter the genre, and Cole notes, “Since we got together the first time we have been jamming and experimenting ever since.” That experimentation has led them to their latest, XV, an album that Cole knows is standing out from the current releases, “I  don’t believe anyone is doing this except maybe Jack White, who is looking at the old blues bands and their simplicity to form an eclectic prequel to relive what was good about back then.”

With their raw take on rock, Obsidian has kept busy playing around Orange County in San Clemente, Dana Point and Costa Mesa, but they are currently planning on branching out and hitting the festival circuit come the summer – as well as leaving California.
