Brave the Cold.
Starting december 1st we head out on a 2 week tour supporting two awesome bands, Pelican and Black Cobra ...(Both of which have new records out on SouthernLord. Be sure to check them out.) We'll have some new shirts (including one by none other than Ryan Begley) and our remaining copies of "The Clearing" on vinyl.

We recently uploaded a handful of tracks on our MYSPACE page from our new full length CD/1.5LP coming out on May 5th from Magic Bullet Records. We re-recorded a few songs off the Winter Sessions EP and there are a bunch of new ones on there as well. We're stoked; this album has been a long time in the making and we're tremendously proud of it. It was recorded at GodCity in Salem MA by the esteemed Kurt Ballou with additional engineering by Devin Charette. Our old buddy and original drummer, Ryan Begley added percussion to the title track.
We've already started writing new material for our next release. Expect to hear some new songs live in the near future and more updates on here.
The full 'The Clearing' 10 track listing is as follows:
A Skull Full of Bats
The CD will be a super-fancy 6 panel Digipak with insert and the vinyl version is a 3-sided LP (black and limited color versions). The artwork for the CD is different than the LP version, but both retain the same concept.
In show news, we have a few 'gigs' coming up, one with Crippled Black Phoenix in Allston, MA at Great Scott's on April 7th and a couple at the end of May with Gods and Queens, and Millions.
Plans for summer shows are in the works. For booking get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We hope to see you soon.

This is what is new:
Our debut full-length album is 100% completed. Performed by us/recorded and mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City/assisted by Devin Charrette/mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering. Soon to be released on Magic Bullet recordings. The artwork is being sorted out now. I'm sifting through a bunch of drawings, analogue photographs and various other graphic elements to make this a fully-realized visual companion to a musical piece that we as a band are very happy with.
It's taken us quite some time to get to this point, but in doing so we've learned that taking our time, doing it right and not cutting corners in order to get something done is absolutely worthwhile. We are most likely looking at an early May release date for both CD and LP. Touring will surely follow, and we're currently talking over plans with some friends.
We look forward to seeing our friends and making new ones while out on the road in the US and with any luck, Europe/UK and beyond.
The destruction and rebirth of our shitty, outdated website is imminent and hopefully not too far off.
Till next time, enjoy,
