A new post-progressive label from the home of Peaceville Records

In recent years, a growing movement of bands has started to reclaim and reinvent aspects of the progressive genre, stripping it of its excess and clichés. Bands have been re-establishing the movement’s original desire to experiment with eclectic musical sources and sonic possibilities in order to produce something meaningful in the here and now.

The scene has divided into a variety of sub-genres, with acts including Porcupine Tree, Radiohead, Amplifier and Oceansize being deemed nu-prog, Muse, Opeth and Mars Volta spearheading the hugely popular prog-metal movement, Rain Tree Crow, No-Man and Air developing ambient prog, and Neon Neon and Dalek establishing the prog-hop genre. Added to the cinematic post-rock of Sigur Ros, Godspeed You Black Emperor and Tortoise, and the soul prog of Lewis Taylor, strands of Progressive influence have been instrumental in creating some of the most vital and exciting new music of the last two decades.

In establishing a dedicated post-progressive label, Kscope will provide a home for this evolving, flexible and adventurous style of music without boundaries. A division of Snapper Music, the home of Peaceville Records (Opeth, Katatonia, Gallhammer, and My Dying Bride), Kscope launches in May 2008 with new albums from its first signings The Pineapple Thief and No-Man.
