New York City post-hardcore act Gospel push the avant-garde tip of a genre already considered to be on rock's cutting edge. Adam Dooling (vocals, guitar) dropped out of art school and originally joined Sean Miller (bass) and Vincent Roseboom (drums) in a band called Helen of Troy. By 2003, the songs they were writing had evolved into art rock realms, drawing on everything from math metal to ambient music to space rock, and necessitated the addition of Jon Pastir (guitar, keyboards) to make it all work, both in the rehearsal room and on-stage. This led to their renaming themselves Gospel, and in 2005 they released their first full-length work, cryptically titled The Moon Is a Dead World. Late the next year, the band announced it was breaking up, though no reason was given.
