Pray for Sound had its origins as a solo studio project started by Bruce Malley in late 2011. He had been diagnosed with a large destructive cyst called a cholesteatoma growing inside his left ear that inhibited his hearing. Despite doctors’ best efforts, he was left with severe hearing loss, tinnitus, and recurring pain. To many musicians and songwriters such a development would be a death sentence, but Malley used his ordeal as inspiration, translating these intensely emotional experiences into instrumental post-rock compositions. Steve Aliperta, Joe Aylward, Chris LaRocque, and Nick Stewart were recruited to help Malley bring Pray for Sound to the stage, and the band quickly made a name for themselves in their native Boston area.
