Torchbearers of progressive, instrumental rock, Intervals, announced the next chapter in their artistic journey today via the explosive new single “5-HTP”. This latest offering finds Aaron Marshall – the creative force behind Intervals – exploring new sonic territory behind a massive wall of guitars, cannon-esque percussion, and a meticulous composition sure to excite the band’s longtime following while welcoming new fans into the fold. The unveiling of “5-HTP” came alongside news that the band’s highly anticipated upcoming fourth full length, Circadian, will be out November 13, 2020 and is available now for preorder. The studio documentary about the making of Circadian is also available to watch now on YouTube.
Quote from Aaron Marshall (Intervals): “I’m so excited to be on the cusp of a new release! After 2.5 years of touring, and whatever the heck this year has been…here we are! 5-HTP is a concise introduction to the world of Circadian, and a quick taste of what this record has in store. As I was nearing the end of the writing process, I felt that the album needed an effective intro, and as a result, 5-HTP was born. I hope everyone enjoys this precursor to the journey ahead, and I can’t wait to share more with everyone as we make our way towards the official drop!”
Circadian was co-produced by Marshall and fellow Torontonian, Sam Guaiana (Silverstein, Obey The Brave, Like Pacific) – marking the first time the esteemed producer had ever worked on an instrumental record. It was also the first time that most of the work on an Intervals record was done locally in Toronto. As a result, Marshall had the opportunity to be more involved in the production and mixing process than ever before. Circadian is meant to be viewed as a singular piece, with obsessive attention paid to the flow of the record. It’s full of motifs, cadences, and themes that are revisited throughout the record and even recalled from previous releases. Circadian intentionally clocks in at 8 songs and roughly 40 minutes, as Marshall gave considerable thought to where the sweet spot between listener satisfaction and desire to immediately play it back was. Every minute detail surrounding the record has purpose, and builds towards an all encompassing experience.

Through the progressive, instrumental rock project, Intervals, Aaron Marshall has long been considered an innovator. He’s built a career on trusting his instincts, even when that intuition has led him down a road that is decidedly less traveled. That may mean tearing down genre norms, finding creative ways to interact with fans, or a commitment to self-releasing music even when label opportunities are readily available to him. Marshall has bet on himself continuously, and backed that gamble up with hard work, unparalleled creativity, and an uncompromising desire to make each Intervals release a pivotal moment in the lineage of instrumental rock. On Intervals’ latest record, Circadian, Marshall continues to push the limit at every turn, resulting in arguably the most dynamic record in the band’s highly-revered catalog.Download Press Photo (Credit: Wyatt Clough) Download Album ArtworkWebsiteInstagramTwitterFacebookSpotify
