Portuguese post-hardcore titans Ash Is A Robot have finished work on their second release. The new EP “Sympathetic Vibration” was released worldwide on January 19th, 2015 along with a new video for the single “Sleep Paralysis”.

The video can be seen below.

The video has gained nearly 4000 views in less than two days. The reception to the video has been overwhelming to the band. The band said: “We are shocked the video has had so many views in such a short space of time and we want to thank our buddie Pedro Estevão Semedo and the beautiful Sofia Crispim for all their dedication in the making of this video”.

Ash Is A Robot started in 2012 in Setubal, Portugal and has gained the labels of a post-hardcore, melodic hardcore, alternative, punk band. As a newly formed unit, the band wasted no time in delving into the local underground scene to play live and get their name out to new fans. All the members came from other bands allowing them to dive into making their first self-titled album with ease. The band went on to playing more than 100 shows following the album release playing with acts like Bury Tomorrow and Moren Than A Thousand.

After the success of the album and the sheer amount of fans the band received in such a short space of time, they wanted to quickly show an alternate side to their musical abilities and that's where the new EP – “Sympathetic Vibration” steps in. The EP features acoustic reworks of songs from the first album along with a brand new song that is being released as a single.

Vocalist Cláudio Anibal said: “We not sure if this EP will be a challenge for the fans that might be used to what we have done so far but for us it's a challenge in itself, maybe a bigger challenge for us than the fans. Sometimes limits help you to stretch the boundaries and find new ways. That's what we wanted by imposing the acoustic element”.
