MATT GARSTKA & JOSH DE LA VICTORIA Jam Live On New Prog Adventure “Kepler” (Via MEINL Cymbals)

Animals As Leaders drummer Matt Garstka and solo guitarist Josh De La Victoria have just dropped their first live, dual playthrough video for a brand-new track entitled “Kepler”! Under the name Victoria, this appears to be the first live playthrough the young musician has released alongside Garstka, and boy does it make a first impression!

The track itself immediately carries you through a swirling landscape of multiple rhythmic and harmonic ideas, while both Victoria and Garstka do what they do best behind their respective instruments. The song is ridiculously complex, yet totally groove-based as the drums and guitars flow seamlessly in and out of sync throughout the over-7-minute beast. And filmed and tracked at the iconic Sphere Studios in Los Angeles, CA, the duo tears it up in this beautiful, multi-angle live playthrough.

Be sure to get the new song on Victoria’s website here.
