Kyle Kendall Discusses All of the Music and Projects!

Progressive metal rocker KYLE KENDALL does the discussion about his debut releases, upcoming projects, with plans to tour soon enough. Plus much else is also discussed about his future planning, more music, and lots else as well.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

“01:25” is the solo project of “Our Sorrows” guitarist and singer Kyle Kendall. I started this project with the intent of creating animated episodes that would elaborate on the songs of the concept album, though animation proved to be outside of the scope these are still songs and stories that I'm incredibly proud of.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Whether it's in “Out Sorrows” or “01:25” time and the passing thereof it's something I find myself writing about a lot. So it only makes sense I have a band name referencing time.

The answer to this question from the perspective of 13-year-old me is that the minute hand in second hand have the makings of the letter “K” and I always thought that was cool as a child.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I currently live Flagler Beach, FL which is a tiny place between St Augustine and Daytona Beach. That being said I rarely step outside of my little bubble so I'm not very familiar with the bands out here.

In Florida however there are tons of bands doing incredibly well, and self-serving but for those that enjoy my lyricism on this album I'd highly recommend checking out my band “Our Sorrows “.

4. How would you describe your style?

My favorite compliment from those that I've shown is “It’s like prog rock or prog metal but you skip straight to the good stuff.”

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

This is the debut release for “01:25”, but you can find old music of mine and more recent in “Mayday! Cried The Captain” and “Our Sorrows”. As far as what to expect, I always try to paint a picture with the lyrics that I write and give multiple layers for people to look into without being too generic. My good friend and incredibly talented producer Andy Karpovck over at The Audio Compound once said;

“So many of the songs you have REALLY tap into like an internal monologue that I think so many people have (including me) but don’t really have the capacity to put into words or even begin to articulate. It really is special, man. It’s kinda like the more I listen to it, the more there is to feel.”

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

I do, “Our Sorrows” has an album dropping this year, I've been working closely with my brother Chris on an untitled project that will be releasing new music this year or next.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Initially I wasn't planning on touring with this band, but I have some friends in the heavy music community whose side projects firstly a line in sound with what I'm doing, so I'm considering it.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I'll be recording three more songs for this project later this year to be released next year. And then I'll be finishing up my next concept album sometime in the near future.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

My first single “Machine” recorded and produced by Chris Wiseman (Shadow of Intent/Currents) will be available April 14 on all major platforms and you can find all my links for merch and updates at

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I don't think there's anything particular that I would like them to remember, just hope they enjoy it as much as I do.
