Hey everyone.

We've got a lot of things that we've been busting at the seems to announce and finally the time is upon us.

Our new record "The Foundation, The Machine, The Ascension" will be released by three amazing labels all across the globe.

In the United States, the good people at The Mylene Sheath will be releasing our three part epic on 3x12" vinyl and also on CD in a 6 panel gatefold sleeve. (

In Europe, Make My Day Records will continue their ever strengthening relationship with Radar Recordings by releasing our new record. Look for alternate artwork and a tour from us to support the release in June. (

Last, but certainly not least, our album will be released in Japan on Stiff Slack Records featuring alternate artwork and remixes by Justin Broadrick (Jesu) and Philip Jamieson (Caspian). (

All artwork is being designed by our good friend Ira Bronson at Black Day Creative and he has personally promised me that this will be his most brilliant visual creation to date.

On the touring front:

Next month takes us down to South By Southwest with Caspian, where we will be playing a couple shows including the Radar Recordings / Giant Steps Finale Party with Pelican, Wolves in the Throne Room, Tombs, Caspian, Junius, Adai, Pack of Wolves, Battlefields, Irepress, Calm Blue Sea and Howl.

We're also very excited to announce that we'll be crossing the pond and spending about 6 weeks touring Europe and the UK in support of the new record. We're still putting together details, but we'll be doing some shows with At The Soundawn who are most excellent and there will be a few other surprises as well.

Look for more news (yes there will be more), more details, and more tour dates over the next several weeks and months.
