New Album "Fathomless" Update
HI Everyone. We thought we'd give you an update on how the new album and music video are progressing. We are almost finished mixing Fathomless. This past month we added the last vocal backing track, as well as the violin work by guest violinist Alice Marie (who we hope to be able to bring out with us for some live shows as schedules allow. We have finished final mixes for most of the songs on the album and will be wrapping up mixing work on the rest shortly.

We are very excited to soon be able to release Fathomless, as we feel that is has some of our strongest material to date on it - both in terms of writing and in production. Mark J. Montoro, the owner and engineer at Philly Jam Recording has been wonderful to work with and we hope to continue to work with him in the future.

Watch some behind-the-scenes youtube videos from the recording studio here.

Music Video Shoot Update
The band recently shot a music video for "Fathomless" with filmmaker Jay Miller this past May. Special thanks to Gina Andreoli for the use of her studio space and to Jay for shooting the video! Jay has sent the band the footage and we are currently doing some final tweaks but the new video should be released very shortly. Keep watching our facebook page or your inbox for its debut.
