Picasso's Dream - Commentary EP

COLUMBUS, DEC 21 – Picasso’s Dream, Central Ohio’s Premier Progressive Rock band, is thrilled to announce the release of their highly anticipated EP, ‘Commentary.’

“Commentary” is a landmark achievement for Central Ohio’s premier progressive rock outfit, showcasing a five-year musical journey that highlights the band’s evolving sound and storytelling capabilities. This release stands as a testament to the collaborative efforts within the band and the unwavering support of their dedicated fanbase.

The EP includes the much-celebrated single ‘Bates Motel,’ seamlessly integrated into the complete package originally envisioned by the band. Fans can finally experience the full scope of this musical journey that began over half a decade ago.

Adding an exciting twist to the EP is a revamped version of ‘Unstoppable Force,’ now featuring the electrifying guitars of Chase VanderMaas. Remixed by the talented Gustavo Madrid, this new iteration brings a heavier and rocking vibe, staying true to the band’s original vision.

‘Coming Into the City,’ a track penned over a decade ago by Anthony S. Anselmo, is another highlight of the EP. Inspired by his experiences navigating Columbus traffic during his early years, this song is a testament to the enduring creativity of Central Ohio’s Premier Progressive Rock band.

Rounding out the EP are the familiar and beloved singles ‘Streetcar Race’ and ‘Walk On Out the Door,’ providing a dynamic listening experience that encapsulates the band’s signature sound.

On this milestone occasion, Anthony S. Anselmo shares, “What could be better than releasing ‘Commentary,’ the album I originally envisioned five years ago? I’m thrilled to share this collection with our fans, and I hope it brings as much joy to them as it has to us.”

As Central Ohio’s Premier Progressive Rock band celebrates this musical milestone, the band invites fans and music enthusiasts alike to join the birthday celebration and download this early Christmas present, making it a memorable 28th (or is it 48th?) birthday for Anthony S. Anselmo and the entire Picasso’s Dream family.
