Acerca de Gyroscope

Coming off the back of the #1 album Breed Obsession in 2008, complete with Gold certification andan ARIA nomination in tow, you would think that they would stick with what seems like a formulafor success.
But for something to succeed you don't need a formula - you need a solid foundation on whicheverything can be built. And few in music have set a foundation as strong as Gyroscope.
"The foundation is what we hold true to, whether it be the foundation of being around for a whileor it be that we've done so much touring and travelling and seen so many things and met so manypeople," singer-guitarist Dan Sanders says. "The band has become a backbone in each member.Each of us, our lives are almost all made up of playing in this band. It's the foundation, thebackbone, and we realise we've got to this point through this. And these opportunities don't comearound every day."
It is this foundation that has produced the most cohesive album of their career, not sticking to theformula. And from this base shoots fourth album, the aptly titled Cohesion, a record with enoughpower to rock even the strongest stadium foundations.
And within Cohesion's wonderful shades of light and dark, of pounding energy and delicateemotion, there's an honesty that shines through. It's the same musical honesty the four have builton since starting out in their early teens.
It is from the mere fact that the band formed when they were still at school, to the size of theirenormous fan base built on more than a decade of releases and relentless touring, that the Perthrock quartet has shown that while nothing in music can be foretold, the right foundation makesanything possible.
The album came to life late in 2009, in the aptly named Rockfield - a picturesque town in Waleswhere Sanders, guitarist Zoran Trivic, bassist Brad Campbell and drummer Rob Nassif took to thegrindstone with around 30 songs they'd spent the year penning.
They recorded in a studio of the same name, the oldest residential studio in the world. With anawe-inspiring history - including the recording of Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen), What's the StoryMorning Glory (Oasis), and albums from Coldplay, Black Sabbath and The Stone Roses - it's nowonder another epic, exceptional album was born within these legendary walls.
Surrounded by this bands history for amazing live acts, producing tracks that would be larger-thanlifeon stage was the main focus on this album, with the aim to construct an LP that sounded like alive set. And they have certainly delivered.
"We feel we've gone back to our roots and made the rock record we set out to make," says Trivic."We're at our best when we're playing live and that's what people know us for."
"People have seen Gyroscope can do a lot of different stuff, so we wanted to knock it home withwhat we can do live," adds Sanders. "We're a live band; that's where we started. Cohesion isn'theavy and crazy, but it's more purposely built for touring. Someone will hopefully listen frombeginning to end and say, ‘I can close my eyes and pretend it's those guys playing the songs.'"
With the songs down to a mean dozen, Gyroscope nailed the perfect dynamic by recording live.Killer hooks and honest, assured song writing is laced with infectious energy and enthusiasm - areflection of the band's studio time. Meanwhile, Sanders tapped into a powerful simplicity behindthe mic, simultaneously inspired by rock heroes like Kurt Cobain and his single-tracked vocals, tolegendary Paul Simon and his delicate emoting.
Enter two weeks of preproduction with pivotal producer Gil Norton, the man behind bandfavourites like Foo Fighters' The Colour And The Shape and The Pixies' Doolittle. While Gil laid theperfect foundation, Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Gomez) mixed up a storm.
"Gil believes preproduction is the most important part of the record-making process," statesSanders. "You get the foundation right and then you can try things afterwards, but you can alwaysgo back to what you had."
With Norton often assuming the role of conductor, standing between the four and hand-signallingfor extra drum fills or more meaty guitars, mutual respect of talent soon turned into the mostrewarding recording experience of Gyroscope's career. This is heard loud and clear on Cohesion, analbum demanding to pick up where 2008's ARIA #1 Breed Obsession left off.
"We've gone to other studios," Sanders explains. "In LA we came out with a Hollywood sheen, andwhen we did Breed Obsession in the UK it was clean and beautiful. But there are still producersaround who go for more of a live, old-school sound. Gil kept reminding us, ‘You want to make arock album or what?' and we were like, ‘Yeah!'"
"You don't have to make it sound so big and pretty," Sanders continues. "In a way the album isstripped-back, but Gil's given it the oomph. It's got what we wanted in body, but it's also got theattack and energy of a live record."
And their first line of attack? Get ready for Gyroscope's live assault with Cohesion, it'll be anotherkiller.
