Skyharbor is a djent/progressive metal band formed in New Delhi, India that started out as a simple bedroom studio project by guitarist Keshav Dhar. The band received a lot of buzz surrounding the band's first ever performance at the Bacardi NH7 Festival in Pune, India, where they played to over 1,000 people and were one of the weekend’s highlights. They released their debut album, Blinding White Noise : Illusion and Chaos, in 2012, featuring Dan Tompkins (ex-Tesseract) as a guest vocalist on the majority of the tracks, and a number of other guests throughout including Marty Friedmen (ex-Megadeth) and more. Subsequently, Dan Tompkins joined the band as permanent vocalist, and Nikhil Rufus parted ways with the project. He was replaced by Goddess Gagged bassist Krishna Mirpuri. In June 2015, due to scheduling conflicts with his other associated act Intervals, drummer Anup Sastry amicably quit the band, being replaced by Indian talent Aditya Ashok, who was the drummer for OX7GEN.
The name Skyharbor is somewhat of a tribute to two of Keshav's favourite artists — Cloudkicker and Oceansize.
