Consider the Source releases spy-themed thriller video for "I Am Inevitable" off their latest Ropeadope release Hybrid Vol. 1: Such As A Mule & gears up for Maxx Power Tour starting this week in Baltimore.
"Manipulating the juxtaposition between light and dark frequently, the song tells a story of conflicting emotions which paradoxically need each other to exist. We wanted to surprise and challenge the listener by shifting these moods harmonically and dynamically. Playing with contrasts in this way gives each section its own platform. The title comes from Marvel Comics super villain Thanos however in classic CTS fashion, we took the quote out of context and when you read these words and then listen to the song, it conjures hope rather than destruction which was the initial intention. We know…we are nerds." ~ CTS
A note from the director Kris Reznik: "This is a video about inspiration and the creative process done in a thriller style." ~ Kris Reznik

More about CTS:
Sci-fi fusion trio Consider the Source defy easy categorization. If intergalactic energy beings, upon their initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built a pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine powered by psychedelic math…it would sound like a cut-rate CTS cover band. With their blend of progressive rock and improvisatory jazz, soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate elements into an utterly original whole. A relentless touring schedule has earned them a fervent following around the world, with fans ranging from tie dye covered hippies to metalheads decked out in black.
Fresh off the heels of a tour of seated performances which highlighted their acoustic instruments and first ever "hybrid" album, the band is ready to get back to the face-melting electric shows they have become known for. Their upcoming Maxx Power Tour will feature material from throughout the band's history, bringing back songs from the very beginning, each album, and a couple of the electric tracks from their latest effort "Hybrid Vol.1: Such As A Mule". Additionally, the band is preparing for the release of their next album in 2023 which they have shared will include "some of the heaviest music we have written yet" and plan to begin weaving into their live shows on this tour.
CTS have performed in a half-dozen countries across three continents. They have shared the stage with a wide variety of artists, including: Victor Wooten, King Crimson Projekt, Wyclef Jean, Ozric Tentacles, Soulive, The Disco Biscuits, Papadosio, Turkuaz, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Wayne Krantz, TAUK and many others. They have performed at festivals and events including: Electric Forest, Peach Fest, Gathering of the Vibes, Resonance, Summer Camp, Shakori Hills, ProgDay, and Progtober.
