“Suppose you've a friend, who thinks jazz-rock an aberration and fusion noodling its inevitable nadir. Here's what you do. Strap them to a chair, put The Wrong Object on at full volume and leave them a few hours. If by then they still don't get it, find another friend.”
—Duncan Heining, Jazzwise

“Belgium’s The Wrong Object is brimming with artful compositions and quirky guitar work. Originally a Zappa tribute band, guitarist Michel Delville and his colorful cohorts have pushed the quintet’s music far beyond homage status, into an oeuvre combining structural complexity with emotional authenticity, much as their mentor’s music did.”-Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player

Since its creation in 2002, The Wrong Object has been hailed as one of the most original and powerful bands on the progressive jazz-rock scene. Into the Herd is the band’s seventh official release (their first one was a collaboration with Soft Machine’s Elton Dean which appeared in 2005).
Merging jazz, rock and classical sensibilities with samples and electronica, influenced as much by Stravinsky and Bartok as by Gong and Zappa, the Belgian sextet continues to expand its vision of intriguing rock and jazz expressed in exuberant shifting accents, superb melodies, contrapuntal complexities and colorful arrangements.
The result is a new opus of thundering monumentality, whose artistry and sound remain unmistakably their own and create a diverse and vibrant listening experience, one which has become well-known in jazz-rock and progressive rock circles and which All About Jazz describes as a mixture of “spunky world-music interludes, outside jazz treatments and scorching movements amid majestic, prog-like escapism”.
With a line-up comprising members of seminal acts such as Univers Zero, Machine Mass and Flat Earth Society, Into the Herd is one of the Wrong Object's most accomplished releases and arguably their strongest offering thus far.”
