Man Must Explore is an explosive alt-rock group based out of Albany, NY, originally started to push musical boundaries through their signature cocktail of post punk and blues influences. With musical themes ranging from the infinite cosmos to shadowy depths of the human mind, they embody the words spoken by astronaut David Scott on the Apollo 15 mission; “I sort of realize there’s a fundamental truth to our nature, Man must explore . . . and this is exploration at its greatest.”

“Whether our music makes you want to break off a bad relationship, scream and cry into the void, or put your fist through a wall, we hope it brings you peace in the end.”

As they continue to record more of their music in this same vein, they remain eager to continue exploring whatever comes next and hope you join them.

A message from Wyatt – “I was born on a farm 7 miles from Saratoga.  I loved music, learned trumpet in school sung in choir. Picked up a guitar at 12 and composed my first songs. I joined the Army and played a 12 string wherever I was stationed – in Texas, Mexico and Germany before coming back to New York. I’ve been playing and composing since 1969. Since 2010 to today I would play drums, bass or any guitar and I’ve built a band that has released 2 albums to date, The Plan-T Band. Positive Projections is what I’m about.”
