Hey folks, we know it’s been a while, so we thought we’d say hi! We’ve been working hard on the next album, and hope to have more news on that front soon. Meanwhile, check out CDBaby’s 1-cent shipping sale December 1st – 3rd. Ship anywhere, any amount, for a penny. Great time to stock up on any albums you’ve been eyeing, maybe toss ours in while you’re at it?

We were very pleased to read a remarkably insightful review over at ProgArchives by seventhsojourn, who has managed to come closer to dialing in this album’s particular frequency than anyone so far. You can find the review here.

Happy Autumn everyone! We finally had our first crisp night of the season, and our first rain in months, which means the holidays must be right around the corner (how did that happen?). If you’re thinking of giving the gift of prog this year, you might like to know that you get a 20% discount if you buy 2 or more physical copies of our debut through CDBaby. That’s only $8.79 each – sweet! Thanks to all of you for your continued support!

Well, it’s done, our debut album is finally here! Some of you have been waiting a long time (thanks for hanging in there!). It was a true privilege working with Mike Keneally, Nick D’Virgilio, Jason Smith, and Max Werner, all of whom showed us the kind of magic great musicians can bring to a project. And we would like to express our profound gratitude to Josquin des Pres of Track Star studios, Bernie Torelli of Nomad Factory, and Rich Mouser of the Mouse House, who shared their talent and skill to help us realize our vision. We had a blast creating it, we hope you enjoy!
