Video: The Human Abstract posts music video for “Complex Terms”

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM (PST)

Los Angeles progressive metal band The Human Abstract have released a music video for their song “Complex Terms” off their 2011 album Digital Veil via E1 Music. The video was recorded in Stuttgart, Germany during their Never Say the N-Word tour.

The Human Abstract is supposedly in the middle of a “break or hiatus” but have just recently posted a cover of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata as well as this video which throws the bands “break” status into question.

Travis Richter leaves The Human Abstract

Posted by NichTheHair on Thursday, August 25, 2011 at 4:28 PM (PST)

LA’s The Human Abstract have parted ways with their singer, Travis Richter. He explains here:

“A couple months ago I told the guys I wasn’t going to tour anymore for a couple reasons. One, I’m turning 30 and have given all my time to bands and the road, and I want to be able to start a family and see my parents and grandparents more. Secondly, I graduated with an audio production degree, and I feel myself being pulled into that world as more of a full time position. I think The Human Abstract is an amazingly gifted group of musicians with mind bending potential and I couldn’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done for me since I joined the band in feb of 2010. The fans have also been more than amazing and accepted me into the THA family, and for that I sincerely thank you!”

His touring replacement will be Ryan Devlin from San Diego’s Corelia. Check out a video of Devlin’s vocal chops here. No word yet as to if he will be a permanent addition. The Human Abstract are preparing to head out on the “Frak the Gods” tour with Periphery, Textures, and The Contortionist. Check here for tour dates.

The Human Abstract’s most recent release and Travis Richter’s only recording with them was “Digital Veil” on E1.

Album Review: The Human Abstract- “Digital Veil”

Posted by NichTheHair on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at 1:25 PM (PST)

Hailing from Los Angeles, California, The Human Abstract return to the spotlight after three years and several line up changes to expertly deliver “Digital Veil” on E1. With the return of founding guitarist A.J. Minette and addition of new singer Travis Richter, there has been new life breathed into this device. The only drawback I have found is that it tops out at just over 36 minutes. While there are only eight songs on “Digital Veil,” each one devastates and delights the listener.

He also issued a comment on his facebook stating: “As some of you know and many have been wondering, I will not be playing with The Human Abstract anymore. This wasn’t decided by me; however, there are no hard feelings. Thanks to everyone who supported the band these past few years and to all the wonderful friends I had the pleasure of meeting. I will be in Los Angeles continuing with music; art is long and time is fleeting –see y’all soon!”

The Human Abstract have recently been shuffling their deck of members. Former founding guitarist A.J. Minette returned to play and produce their newest release “Digital Veil” which is due in stores March 8th on E1.
