Hello all

I just wanted to write a few words since I haven't been able to in awhile. For the past 2 months we have been working on this new record and have been slaving away since the beginning of the process because we believe in the message and to be quite honest are happily in our element when the crimson red record button is pressed. Over the past few years of this band's existence--we have struggled mightily with our journey. Wonderfully, we have run parallel with our successes and trepid with the bumps in the road. But as of recent, we have had more of a forceful mindset. To embrace the fear of falling, to welcome the possibility of our missteps--and thankfully, this newfound faith has allowed us to breath far more deep, swim much farther out from shore than we could have imagined. When you have a desire to release your art to the world--you can't hide your parental--almost guardian like instincts. Almost as if you were to dread the day your child leaves for the pitfalls and heartache of college. Alas, your desire remains, and even though you remind yourself that you committed to releasing the lion you raised back to the wild from your safe containment in captivity--you still shudder at the thought. What if people listen and despise your work? What if your blood and soul isn't well received but asked to stand in the corner like some hideous decrepit leper who can't bear the thought of dancing---? But after our experience with the 'higher-ups' in the past 2 years, we came to the ultimate decision that no matter what, if we are blessed to have a listener's ears then we are happy to hear the critique to follow. Good or bad. Worse than the good or bad--is the indifference. I would much rather hearing that an individual associated with an emotion, or hated each chord---than---nothing at all. It has been 4 years since 'For Her' was released and we are ready to move to the next level in our favorite video game. So, thank you those who have given their patience so willingly. Our attempt is to offer you music that will elevate you to a calm that you have had before but didn't have the soundtrack to accompany it with.
Love and Blessings,
