“Lift to Experience was an ocean of sound: monumental guitar drones, leviathan bass riffs, drums creating titanic surges.” – Jon Pareles, New York Times “Lift to Experience still deliver a heaven that deserves more time on earth.” – David Fricke, Rolling Stone
Following the release of the definitive edition of their seminal double concept album, The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, Lift to Experience has released a new video for “Falling From Cloud 9.” The video follows the band as they gather and prepare to play together for the first time in over 15 years. The video was filmed by Clay Grier and edited by Erica Silverman. WatchHERE.
The band has also announced they will release the Falling From Cloud 9 EP on May 12, 2017. The EP will feature the original version of “Falling From Cloud 9,” an acoustic version of the track recorded at XFM in 2001, plus a very special recording from one of the band’s many John Peel sessions.
Lift to Experience formed in Denton, Texas at the end of the last millennium by Josh T. Pearson, Andy Reginald Young and Josh “Bear” Browning. Their rise was fast and their reign was short. Following the release of their long-form masterpiece, the band imploded at the peak of their career due to a series of cruel tragedies. In this short time, however, Lift to Experience achieved high critical acclaim and were so beloved by John Peel that he invited them to record three Peel sessions in just five months, and the band were included in the Best 125 Peel Sessions of all time.
