Mirages is a melodic metal band from Lake Charles, Louisiana. The group prides itself on its execution of fusing heavy, low-tuned music with a mature sense of harmony and clean atmospheric production. Fresh off the release of their debut EP, the band has been performing locally and regionally to build traction for "Vista."
With roots tracing back to 2013, the band saw many lineup changes in its early years. Former iterations have performed styles of music that span rock, progressive, and metal genres alike. Solidifying as a 4-piece band in 2017 has brought with it a focused musical approach; one that hopes to provide a very open landscape for the band's challenging and introspective lyrics.
Performing for the last six years, some alongside notable Louisiana acts such Weeping Hour and The Arbitrary as well holding down direct support for national acts such as Darkness Divided and Invent Animate have shaped the group's live dynamic into a tight and professional onslaught. At any Mirages performance, one can always expect high-energy precision with plenty of room left for improvisational reimaginings of the band's melodic passages.
