About Flux Capacitor
Melding energetic, spacy improvisation with electronica and melodic rock songwriting, Pennsylvania's Flux Capacitor spent the early 2010s building a grassroots fan base through constant touring and a series of vibrant studio albums including their 2011 Jack Endino-produced sophomore outing, Monolith. A staple of the jam band circuit, Flux Capacitor pull from a wide range from tonal influences, from Phish and Bob Marley to more sonically cerebral acts like Pink Floyd and Radiohead.
Formed in West Reading, Pennsylvania in 2007 by brothers Peter (vocals, guitar), Michael (keys), and Jason Specht (drums), Flux Capacitor cut their teeth regionally, issuing their debut, They Know We Know, before hitting the road nationally. With their profile raised, the trio headed to Seattle to record their hard-hitting follow-up album, Monolith, with producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden). Following the album's 2011 release, the brothers widened their touring base, playing across the U.S. and Canada as well as in the U.K., sharing stages with a variety of acts like Rusted Root, Ozomatli, Lukas Nelson, and Railroad Earth. A third studio album, Cycle 9, appeared in 2013, followed by a pair of singles, "Dome" and "Radio," in 2015. Documenting their epic live shows, Flux Capacitor released their first concert recording, Live Spirals, Vol. 1, in 2017.
