Shumaun, the internationally acclaimed progressive rock sensation known for their dynamic sound and introspective lyrics, is expanding their discography this year with their fourth album, “Opposing Mirrors,” set to release at the end of June 2024. Prior to this release, they will have a couple of singles to whet the palettes of rock fanatics around the world, the first being “Some Memories”, which was released earlier this May. The band is now sharing the drum playthrough for the track by guest drummer Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats).

““Some Memories” possesses a remarkably potent and dynamic sound. The guitars seamlessly transition between low and high tones, heavy and light textures, slow and fast tempos, and chords and notes, adding depth to the composition. There is incredible drumming throughout the song, by Marco Minnemann. The bass serves as an embellishment, enhancing the overall musical landscape. The vocals and synths are intricately layered atop the instrumentation to give the song its various shapes and colors.” adds guitarist Tyler Kim.

Initially conceived as a solo project by Farhad Hossain, Shumaun quickly evolved into a collaborative powerhouse with the addition of talented musicians. They believe the album is best experienced when played in sequence. While not a traditional concept album, it maintains a thematic coherence, much like their previous releases. “Opposing Mirrors” is recommended for fans of Rush, Porcupine Tree, and Fates Warning.

“Opposing Mirrors” is due out on June 28, 2024, and available for pre-order at​

What the press has said:

“US prog trio Shumaun blend progressive musical inclinations with arena-sized choruses on powerful new song Some Memories.” – Prog Mag

“…there’s a ton of excellent progressive hard rock here. Memories & Intuition has the capability to appeal to a wide range of fans.4/5” – Heavy Music Headquarters – The Progress Report: September 2021
“A great job for this band that impresses for simplicity and originality, with an eye to giving their fans something that has a notable sonic impact and marked yet soft lines.” – Music Webzine
​WINNER: The Deli Magazine’s “BEST OF 2015 Reader’s Pick Award” for Washington DC​
“It’s not just Orbin’s simple-complex drumming that shines here. Hossain’s soaring vocals, and the guitar/bass dynamics. They sound simple but scream progressive, forward-thinking. While pop-oriented progressive rock tunes aren’t usually on Decibel’s turntable (digital or physical), Shumaun was hard to deny.” – Decibel Magazine
“Great vocals, well-written songs, and solid musicianship are the hallmarks for the debut self-titled release by Shumaun. It’s a very enjoyable album for anyone who likes to sing along with their music. With Shumaun, the songs come first. And that makes for a very enjoyable experience.” – Progressive Music Planet
“AWESOME! OK, this band is AWESOME and have produced probably my favourite album of the year.” – Decibel Geek
“Shumaun’s music is impressive and pretty close to brilliant – Background Magazine
“Has the best album of 2019 been released right at the beginning of the year? That’s not fair! Everyone else with a 2019 release has their work cut out for them, to stand up against Shumaun’s brilliant sophomore effort: “One Day Closer to Yesterday.” – Metal Asylum
“Farhad Hossain puts goose bumps on my arms with his beautiful voice.” – Rock Portaal
“This stuff is incredibly catchy, mostly due to the excellent vocals of Hossain. Sometimes I find the emphasis on lead vocals rather annoying, especially if the vocals are not up to snuff. That is far from the case here. His vocals are superbly melodic and had me completely transfixed throughout the disc’s fifty-two minute running time.” – Sea of Tranquility
