Based in Santiago, Chile, and having released five highly acclaimed studio albums, Aisles have become South America’s most important progressive band of the past two decades. Their daring combination of rock, fusion, jazz and world music illustrates the band’s uniquely eclectic approach. They have toured the Americas, Europe, and performed with prog legends Marillion, Focus, and Riverside.
In 2005, Aisles released their debut album, The Yearning, recognized for its elegant and delicate melodic work, especially on epic songs such as ‘The Wharf that Holds His Vessel’ and ‘Gray‘. In 2009, their second album, In Sudden Walks, inspired by existential literature and by theater, was nominated for Best Foreign Record at the Prog Awards in Italy, and the group also participated in the 11th version of the Progressif Crescendo Rock Festival in France. Their third record, 4:45 AM (2013), which looked into the loneliness of the human being, received rave reviews and was ranked among the best albums of that year in numerous publications specialized in progressive rock.
Their fourth studio album, Hawaii (2016), a conceptual double album that narrates the life of humanity in space after the destruction of the Earth, was called a “masterpiece” and globally acclaimed by media such as Prog, IO Pages, and Chile’s premiere rock magazine, Rockaxis. The success of the album allowed Aisles to tour in Europe, the United States and Mexico.
In July, 2023 Aisles released “Bahamut”, an instrumental suite based on the sci-fi novel by Chilean writer Francisco Ortega, and the first release with their new drummer Álvaro Poblete.
