    NEW ARTIST ALERT: Ohio Sky to Release "The Big Distraction" on January 24 - Check out a song!

    Forward-thinking Cleveland quartet Ohio Sky will release their new album The Big Distraction on January 24 through Cellar Door Records.

    So who are Ohio Sky? We are glad you asked!

    The band will celebrate its album release with a hometown show at The House of Blues Cambridge Room, with support from fellow Clevelanders Nights and Columbus band EYE.

    The album is marked by the deft interplay of heavy and light, quiet and loud. It's bolstered by soaring melodies, room-filling rhythms, and undulating riffs, all of which are tempered by space rock atmosphere.

    The album is truly the culmination of the band's sound. It's noisy, it's atmospheric, and it will leave a mark. Fans of think-outside-the-box rock bands like The Mars Volta, Coheed and Cambria, The Deftones, and Converge will certainly flock to Ohio Sky.

    "We recorded this record live in a hunting lodge over a week in the summer of 2014. It really captures the refined performance of our band," Ohio Sky said. "It's like a high-fidelity journey through psychedelic and visual melody. Like the soundtrack to summer hailstorms and winter campfires."

    Listen to "Slow Down Stay Alive" below.
