From being a fledging studio project out of the late 2000’s global prog-metal surge, Skyharbor rapidly established themselves as one of the leading progressive bands from the Indian subcontinent. Since then, the band has performed around the world, with tours in the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Russia and India.
In the last 4 years, the band has performed at eminent festivals like Euroblast Festival (Germany), UK Tech Fest, Download Festival (UK), Dissonance Festival (Italy) and Graspop Metal Meeting (Belgium) to name a few. In 2012, Skyharbor was hand-picked by the Lamb Of God drummer, Chris Adler, to support them in the Bangalore leg of their world tour. Between November-December in 2015, they toured 28 cities in North America & Canada with Tesseract, The Contortionist and ERRA. In October 2016, the band went on a 14 city headlining European/UK tour with Sithu Aye (Scotland) and Modern Day Babylon (Czech Republic). Skyharbor supported Deftones on the European leg of their Gore Album launch tour in April 2017
Their astounding double disc debut album Blinding White Noise: Illusion and Chaos featured Marty Friedman, Daniel Tompkins (Tersseract), Vishal J. Singh (Amogh Symphony) and Sunneith Revankar (Bhayanak Maut). In 2013, Skyharbor swept the board at Rolling Stone Metal Awards, scoring Best Song (both critic and popular). In 2014, the band was nominated in the Global Metal Category at the prestigious Golden Gods Metal Awards. In the same year, they released their second album ‘Guiding Lights’ after a successful crowdfunding campaign aiding them to rope in Forrester Savell (SikTH, Animals as Leaders, Karnivool) for mixing and mastering.
