SCALE THE SUMMIT’s latest album, the critically acclaimed, Billboard-charting release ‘The Migration’, was hailed as “post-rock at its most melodic and dynamic best” by Alternative Press. The third vinyl pressing of the album is currently available on either green or white vinyl and includes a poster featuring expanded artwork by cover artist Duncan Storr.
Additionally, bassist Mark Michell, has released an instructional book, ‘Sightreading 101 For Bass: Reading Standard Notation, Vol. 1’, which focuses on the basics of learning to interpret, read, and sightread standard notation. You can pick up a copy from the band at one of their upcoming tour stops!
