Proximity Butterfly

Proximity Butterfly, Psychedelic / Punk / Rock from Chengdu (China), started in August 2003 by Joshua C. Love and Heather Judson.

A full fledge orchestrated Mars volta-style entourage, PB is now far from their first album, arcana with two drummers, sound effect personas, saxaphone/clarinet/trumpet, bass, and guitar. Preparing for the release of “The Antikythera Mechanism” PB has stepped off of the ground to hit China’s nationwide music festival scene from Shanghai to Chengdu and Inner Mongolia to shows in the hottest clubs and bars around the nation.

After their third nationwide tour, the butterflies are moving into the limelight…

“For Chengdu, uh, there’re tonz of bands, there are Proximity butterfly, as I would say the most intimite band, very orgiastic, they take their time to build up the songs.” -china daily-

    Wow. I'm surprised to find you guys don't have more listeners. You're really good. I figured Kill the Popstar would be a fluke, but all three of the MP3's I grabbed are positively shimmering with talent.

    Thanks for the comments... this page is not run by us personally. The one we often modify is proximity butterfly (变色蝴蝶). So maybe we can make a link to the events into this page... the other page should have more songs available. Thanks by the way for coming to the show and we look forward to the Jah Bar in two weeks... the new Poltergeist: Cinerarium Album is out in a special limited edition!!

    At last year's release party for arcana there was some trouble with the show having to end early because of the legality of the amount of people congregated. People paid 15rmb for less than an 1hr of music. We want to do another show on the same day this year, completely free, to say thanks for the 400+ people that came out to support our music and the music scene in Chengdu. Thanks! Without that
