Battle Trance 
Friday, September 9th at 8pm

New York-based tenor saxophone quartet Battle Trance came to Asheville to play a benefit concert at the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center. They are on tour promoting their sophomore album Blade of Love, which will be released on New Amsterdam Records, with a vinyl edition released by NNA Tapes on August 26, 2016.

The follow-up to their widely acclaimed debut Palace of Wind (2014), Blade of Love is an elemental composition that aims to fulfill the tenor saxophone’s expansive potential as an ensemble instrument. Working within the intimate intersection of the human body/breath and the saxophone, Blade of Love is a spiritual and enigmatic work with a deep emotional resonance.
