Since the 2004 release of their first LP, End Note (Neurot Recordings), Enablers have established a new direction for the use of spoken word with music. The prose and poetry of Pete Simonelli is intricately woven into the dynamic interplay of the guitars of Joe Goldring and Kevin Thomson punctuated by the compulsive and precise drumming of Doug Scharin. Musically, the compositions range from melodic minimalism to heavy, rhythmically challenging thickets of sound.

Following End Note came the critically favored LP’s Output Negative Space (Neurot Recordings) and Tundra (Exile on Mainstream) and two EP’s featuring extended improvisations (The Achievement on Awesome Vistas and Now You Can Answer My Prayers on Lancashire and Somerset). With an almost entirely DIY approach to touring and intense live performances, Enablers continually reach an ever growing number of fans in the underground of the European continent and the UK.
