Toby Peterson-Stewart releases brooding new single Endless

Melbourne-based producer and bass virtuoso Toby Peterson-Stewart releases brooding new single Endless and announces it will be track two of three on his debut EP ‘Break A Leg’, out Friday May 19.

Endless made its debut on triple j The Racket on Tuesday night, and features none other than Jacob Umansky of progressive and technical metal bands Intervals and The Faceless, where both musicians masterful bass prowess is melded to craft one undeniably groove-filled, frenetic track. Endless also features programmed drums by Nathan Bulla (Intervals, AURAS), and additional keyboard programming from Alan Hankers (JIA), adding atmospheric depth to the tune.

“Jacob and I wrote the song together over the course of two weeks, sending riffs and melodies back and forth on Instagram, bouncing ideas off each other,” tells Toby.

“This song started with a two-riff idea that I sent to Jacob, and he added another riff and his spin. Before you knew it, we had an awesome song that we are both proud of. It was so much fun to bounce ideas off of each other, creating something unique we both couldn’t have done on our own.”

Previous single D.H.D. arrived as the first single from ‘Break A Leg’ and the third single written, recorded and mixed by The Omnific bassist as a solo artist, in collaboration with progressive rock and metal heavyweights Rohan Sharma (RO1) on production and Forrester Savell on the master (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, COG).

Toby has grown a large and engaged following on social media with close to 50,000 subscribers across Instagram, Tik Tok and YouTube, garnering over half a million views on the latter. He has collaborated with members of I Built The Sky, PliniIssues and Reflections and caught the attention of prog virtuousos Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders) and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theatre).

He has been playing in the 2-bass progressive instrumental trio The Omnific for over seven years, where the three-piece create an extraordinary mosaic that dances between progressive rock, djent, funk, and synth-driven soundscapes.

The Omnific’s live show, full of character, swagger, showmanship, and stellar technical performances, has left a lasting impression on audiences across the world. In Australia, the band have completed several successful headline tours and have toured with the likes of Between The Buried & MeNe ObliviscarisTwelve Foot NinjaCOG and Galactic Empire. In Europe & UK, The Omnific traversed the continent with Intervals and Sithu Aye in 2019.

With their musical craft truly unique and a live show unlike any other, The Omnific stand tall as the world’s most prominent bass driven instrumental rock act. Toby Peterson-Stewart steps out from the collective with his solo pursuit, showcasing his aptitude as one of the most proficient bassists in the country.

Endless and D.H.D. are available now and streaming everywhere. ‘Break A Leg’ will be available Friday May 19.
