Return to Earth

Return To Earth - Ron Scalzo, Chris Pennie, Brett Aveni

Return To Earth is a New Jersey-based trio comprised of vocalist Ron Scalzo, guitarist Brett Aveni, and drummer/programmer/synth player Chris Pennie, formerly of renowned math metal technicians The Dillinger Escape Plan.

When they finally found some time away from their other musical pursuits in 2006, Aveni and Pennie began collaborating on the music that, with Scalzo’s subsequent recruitment on vocals, populated RTE’s 2007 debut album, Captains of Industry, a collection of aggressive but largely traditional heavy rock. It wasn’t until they began working up new material for its follow-up, Automata (released on Metal Blade/Bald Freak in 2010), that Return To Earth really started broadening its palette, adding electronic, industrial, and avant-garde music styles to their songs.

Return To Earth followed up Automata with two digital singles, “I Got A Bomb” and “Nothing Exists But Atoms and the Void,” both currently available on the band’s BandCamp page.
