Biography

Before MOONSPEED, pteranodon, and Bright Channel; Or even Flight Approved Records for that matter, there was a band called Volplane. Formed in Colorado in the mid 90’s, Volplane’s initial lineup included Jeff Suthers (guitar), Todd Ayers (guitar), Shannon Stein (bass), and Dicky Bosse (drums). Todd Ayers exited the group early on, and Volplane solidified its core three-piece lineup in 1996. Volplane was one of the many early American bands that were just on the cusp of the new American / scene, just when the grave of the UK was fresh and grassless. That torch had been passed abroad. Joining the ranks of other US artists, from Skywave in the east, to Bethany Curve in the west, Volplane’s flag hit close to the center of America. Their music was filled with sonic imagery, with dark emotional blissful overtones. Sometimes comparible to previous artists like Bailter Space, early Verve, and the Charlatans.

From 1997 to 1999, Volplane spent much of their time recording material that was supposed to have been their debut album, Volplane, and a second album, Merlot, although neither saw an official release. Fans of Volplane awaited news of the release of these records, but when drummer Dicky Bosse left the band in 1999, the news came that Volplane was no more, gone before it seemed to even begin.
