Canyons of Static. A band from West Bend, WI, formed in 2005. Featuring husband and wife guitarist Ross Severson and keyboardist Aggie Severson along with bassist Chris Biertzer and drummer Nathan Gaffney. Canyons of Static is an instrumental quartet that blends the distorted melodies of shoegaze with the intensely emotional aspects of post-rock.

With no central songwriter, the music evolves from a collective process of experimentation challenging the boundaries and forms of traditional rock music. They self-released two ep’s in 2006 and their first full-length album, The Disappearance, in 2008.

Canyons of Static continues to grow their audience through a dynamic live show.Performances feature homemade abstract films projected onto multiple screens creating a unique experience of sight and sound. Currently Canyons of Static are wrapping up recordings for a new full-length album.
