“Reset” is the third official full length album by ifsounds via Melodic Revolution Records, and is the bands very first attempt at producing  and releasing an album both in English and in Italian to explore lyrical opportunities in both their Native and English language.

“Reset” is an album about sudden stops and re-starts. Musically it’s about ifsounds, their story, their evolution and re-birth as a band. Lyrically “Reset” is about those shocking events that can upset a quite and ordinary life, leading you to want to completely reset your existence. The English version of the album is not the literal translation of the Italian version, but the overall meaning of the lyrics is much the same.

According to  Guitarist Dario Lastella the band has changed considerably since their last release “Red Apple” in 2012, the band had unraveled shortly after the release, leaving the project with only two members left in the band. Dario worked effortlessly to rebuild ifsounds with new musicians, there were many auditions before the band was complete, and many rehearsals with the revamped band.

Of course with the new line-up the musical style changed a bit, for example; Runal is a rock blues singer with a musical background heavier than former ifsounds’ singers, while Gianni Manariti is a drummer and vocalist from the electronic-rock band Ottovolante and he runs the stoner rock label Red Sound Records… The music of ifsounds’ is now more direct and heavier, while always keeping one eye on melodies and one on the prog-rock structures and harmonies that the band is known for.

“Reset” is due for release on July 30th and is the sum of very different musical experiences: you might hear echoes of classic and prog bands such as; Pink Floyd, Genesis, PFM, but there are several elements from hard rock and heavy blues rock acts such as; Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Boston or Kyuss, blended together in what is to become the new sound of ifsounds. Even with the new direction the band plan on maintaining their crossover prog rock roots.
