Four Seconds Ago, the newly-formed electro duo featuring Periphery’s Jake Bowen and Misha Mansoor, release their debut album, The Vacancy.
“I’m so excited to finally be able to put out this passion project that Jake and I have been working on,” says Misha Mansoor. “We first discussed doing a project like this over a decade ago at this point, but finally found the time and inspiration to do so. We set no rules or goals other than to just have fun with the whole process and see what comes of it. I hope you guys enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!”
“Misha and I have really incredible chemistry when it comes to music,” explains Bowen. “We’ve written a ton of songs together, and it just comes out easily. With Four Seconds Ago, there was no pressure, because we had no expectations. It’s also something we’ve wanted to do since I first joined Periphery in 2006. We initially bonded over Telefon Tel Aviv, Trifonic, Prefuse 73, and other similar acts and talked about a project for years. However, we weren’t ready to do this until now.”
The 10-song debut also serves as the inaugural release for 3DOT Recordings, a newly formed label from the six Periphery band members. Future plans for the label include releasing the future Periphery albums, as well as the individual musicians’ side projects.
