First Listen: Ocupanther’s ‘III e III’

datastretch is happy to share the first listen of Ocupanther’s new single “III e III”. Ocupanther hails from Rochester and first came onto the scene in 2011. Three of the four members of this quartet played together for years as regional touring band Pia Mater. A change in direction for that band and the addition of long time friend and shred wizard Mike Pantano birthed Ocupanther. Data Stretching will mark the third studio release for the band after 2012’s Troncoso and 2013’s Progressor. Keep an eye on for a full review of the new release and enjoy “III e III” while you wait.
