DSSP17 Artist of the Day: Set and Setting

Set and Setting are an instrumental band from St. Petersburg Florida, whose work encompasses drone and ambient music to experimental rock and metal. The band was founded by guitarist Shane Handal, as a recording project in 2009. Several musicians came and went with the lineup finally settling around drummers Mark Etherington and Stephen Handal, guitarist Ryan Fugate, and bassist Nick Sibilia. Their debut album "Equanimity", was issued in 2013 via Science of Silence Records, which they supported with the effort of DIY touring throughout the underground and extreme music scenes in all of the U.S. and parts of Canada. In 2014, Set and Setting released their second album, "A Vivid Memory" via Prosthetic Records and continued to tour internationally and locally with bands such as Mouth of the Architect, EyeHateGod, Inter Arma, and Kayo Dot throughout 2015. 2016 brought a tough year of writing and recording while battling injuries within the band limiting live performances. The beginning of 2017 brings Set and Setting's third full-length album, "Reflectionless" along with more touring.
