9/7/19 - Well its been sometime since our last band update to this website but the band is pleased to announce that we will be using this official page more often to post news, merch, songs, shows, etc. That being said we'd also like to let everyone know that we are alive and still pushing forward with the band, writing new material, playing shows, and developing our style even further into the abyss of musical possibilities. The band has parted ways with Adam Weber as he carries onward with his new position in the band INFEX and moves to a more thrash oriented world. Austin Spence has since stepped up to the plate, switching instruments from Bass to guitar (along with vocal duties) and writing the bulk of the material with drummer Luke Boutiette. Luke and Austin are proud to announce that there are 7 new songs written and are still working on more material for a new release scheduled for sometime next year tentatively. With their contract finished for a 3 album deal with Deepsend Records the band is now free again to start with a fresh plate and are open to all options and ideas for the future. Here's a video from a recent rehearsal of a drum and guitar play through for a new song. Also, be sure to check out the SHOWS page for upcoming dates - Enjoy!
