about

"Climate inaction, apathy, greed.
Every one, another subtle atom bomb"

We realised when writing this album that we were distilling all of our frustrations, fears and hopes about climate change into the music. Mostly wordless, but with more words than we've ever used before. Epic and brooding, with buzzsaw bass made from a snare drum strapped to the bass amp, some of our most stark violin moments, and an ending that can read a few different ways depending on your point of view....we hope you find it as cathartic as we have.
