The Fringe is a bold, electrifying trio consisting of Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance), Jonas Reingold (Karmakanic, The Flower Kings), and Nick D'Virgilio (Big Big Train). After nearly three years since their initial meeting, the eponymous debut album, The Fringe has arrived. Prompted by D'Virgilio's desire to put together a trio for a pair of shows in Poland, The Fringe had an organic, blossoming chemistry from the very beginning. In enlisting Reingold and McStine, the three explored new arrangements of songs from their respective catalogs. It was clear after their short time together that continuing on as a group was in everyone's best interests. Although modern recording technology would've easily allowed for D'Virgilio, McStine, and Reingold to write and record their debut album from remote locations, the spark of working together in the same room was strongly felt during their first sessions. The trio decided to approach the rest of project in this manner, making Sweetwater Studios its home base. Within two additional writing and recording sessions, the remainder of the songs on the record were solidified. Upon completion, it is clear that The Fringe has captured the hallmarks of what we've come to adore about our favorite Rock power trios of yesteryear, while becoming a fresh addition to today's musical landscape. Loaded with possibilities and an excitement for venturing into the unknown, Nick D'Virgilio, Randy McStine, and Jonas Reingold present us their first chapter together as The Fringe.
