The band has been hard at work in the studio over the last 9 months on their new album »Violent Entertainment« which release today. Already receiving positive feedback from media, with the likes of The Obelisk calling it “Sharp in its songwriting and malleable, clearly, to whatever purposes the band point it toward.”

The band explain a little more about the inspiration for the album, “»Violent Entertainment« is a commentary on the times we find ourselves as humans… a constant diet of social media and reality shows. We are shocked by nothing anymore, allowing ourselves to be influenced by whatever speaks strongest to our personal viewpoint. We have become selfish, and live from selfie to selfie, one foot in the real world and one foot online. »Violent Entertainment« laments the loss of real human emotion and cries for a return to real interactions… a call for a time that is sadly long gone.”
