So we will be hitting the studio this fall to record not only our second full length Rodin but also a split 7″ with our overseas friends in Amber! We couldn’t be more excited about these releases and have been hard at work not only on the songs for these two releases but also an EP to follow as well called Friedrich. We’ve decided on Herman Melville’s 1856 short story ‘The Piazza’ as the inspiration for our contribution to the split. You can read that here, check out Amber here and expect the split sometime later this year.
A tentative release schedule will look something like this
Winter 2013 – Split 7″ w/ Amber
Spring 2014 – Rodin LP
Later in 2014 - Friedrich EP
Anyone in the area, if you’d like to see us and preview some of these new songs we will be playing Basement Transmissions in Erie, PA on October on October 17th with Full of Hell, React and a bunch of other great bands. Hopefully we should have new T-shirts for sale by then with our awesome new design from Thee Ruiner as well!
Our debut full length Kafka is now available on 12″ vinyl and cassette! Records come with white or black vinyl, a black inner sleeve and a fold out poster/lyric sheet. Grab a copy from our merch store or through one of the labels; huge thanks again to Replenish, I.Corrupt, Désordre Ordonné and Skeletal Lightning!

John G did the awesome poster which will be for sale and we get to share the stage with our friends in All Dinosaurs, Eddie Doldrum, Saint Ohio & Nope! We will have Kafka LPs and there will be a raffle for merch and other items, all of the proceeds of which will go to Sam! See you there!
Here is the link for the facebook event.
We are so excited to finally release Kafka for pre-order, streaming and free download! Huge thanks for all the labels and everyone else involved to let this finally happen. The record will be out in one month, on July 25th, and we will be playing three awesome shows to support it: Super Slam Fest in Indianapolis, the Brighter Arrows LP release in Chicago and Grand Rapids with our buds in The Reptilian! Please enjoy and share!

USA / CANADA / EUROPE
We are keeping with our tradition of always giving our music away for free download but if you’d like to give back please consider a pay-what-you-will from Replenish Records. Our bass-player Jason’s roommate was recently diagnosed with cancer and 100% of digital proceeds will be going to help him through a difficult time. Cleveland fans keep tuned for a benefit show in the near future.
After sorting some things out it looks like Kafka will be released in Europe by I.Corrupt, the US by Replenish and in Canada by Désordre Ordonné! The tape version will be handled by Skeletal Lightning as well. Looks like we will be able to announce a release date, pre-orders, streaming and downloads all soon!
Our 4-way split with Oaken, Coma Regalia and Wounded Knee is out now! The split features “The White Dam”, the last of our ‘Collected’ songs to be released on vinyl. The record looks and sounds great and we’re so thankful to all the labels and bands that put this together! Ended up pressing on translucent lavender, translucent gold, marble and black. You can grab it or a pack of the splits at the merch store as well.

In other news, our full length Kafka should be at the pressing plant shortly so expect some sounds and a pre-order soon! Here is the cover designed by our good buddy Jon Weed of Cassilis fame who designed the 7″ split as well~
A couple of quick announcements to ring in the new year;
The Kafka recording went fantastic and is definitely the best any of our bands have ever sounded. The record will be mixed and mastered by the end of January. The 12″ will be released by our friends at I.Corrupt and Replenish Records plus one more label TBA and Skeletal Lightning will be doing the tape version. The artwork is being done by our friend Jon Weed of Cassilis who did such an awesome job on our 7″ together…as soon as we have something to show everyone it will be here!
The 4-way split is on it’s way to the pressing plant and should make it’s appearance soon!
