About this Episode

This week on The Smashing Skull Sessions podcast, I am proud to welcome RANGES.

Hailing from Bozeman, Montana, RANGES have been a beacon of light for the Post Rock genre for nearly a decade. The vast and rugged landscape of Montana has clearly defined and shaped their sound, with their mix of powerful, transcendent post-rock blended beautifully with serene and subdued ambient soundscapes.

Founding members CJ Blessum and Wilson Raska joined me for a chat, where we discuss the band's early days right through to their European tour which wrapped up a few months back.

We also get an insight into the incredible work being done at A Thousand Arms, which is a multi-faceted enterprise that incorporates a record label, a distribution hub and an online marketplace, while also providing services for custom screen-printing!

One of the hardest working bands in the business, RANGES are a hugely respected and adored group of artists within the post music scene, so I'm sure this will be of interest to a lot of you out there!. The interview is available on YouTube and all good streaming platforms, so go check it out!!
