The Fringe

The Fringe is a new rock trio consisting of Nick D’Virgilio (Spock's Beard): drums & vocals, Jonas Reingold (Karmakanic, The Flower Kings): bass & vocals and Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance): guitars & vocals.

 The music on their s/t debut album skirts around the edges of progressive rock, leaning towards the alternative side of Spock’s Beard, or the more populist moments from power trios such as Mr. Big, Rush, or King’s X.

Alternative, progressive, pop, jam band…The Fringe exists at the edge of each of these genres–or, better–at the intersection of them all taken together. Virtuoso musicianship is always on display, and there are plenty of time-signature changes, but the band focuses on driving riffs, melodic hooks, and lots of two- and three-part harmonies.
