“The idea to cover came up early on. Those guys are from a time where music wasn’t about playing it safe and that is a mindset I’d love to see make a return. seemed like a perfect, chaotic song we could pull off as a cover but when it came down to it, the music lent itself to a change of pace in our writing style. We slowed it down and piled on layer after layer of filth and desperation. Really hope we make uncle Al proud with this one.” – Alex Estrada (vocals)

’ new record pays tribute to bands that have inspired and influenced their sound and tastes over the years, including covers of tracks by Duran Duran, Garbage and . The record also features a new original song “Follow Your Lead” and a remix of their song “Charmer” (Nexialist X L.A. Wombat Remix).

“The idea behind was to be a bridge between our last release, Saboteur, and the direction we have been moving in while writing new material. We chose three different songs by artists that have had influence on us over the years, “Come Undone” by Duran Duran, “#1 Crush” by Garbage, and “Burning Inside” by Ministry. Along with these songs we have included a brand new track, Follow Your Lead, as well as a Remix of the song “Charmer” off of our previous album. was arranged and self produced in the summer of 2017 in various hotel rooms while on tour as well as The Earth Capital in Los Angeles, CA. It was then Mastered by Greg Reely (Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly). We have already begun work on a new full length recording to be released some time in 2018. We’ll see you soon.” – Alex Estrada (vocals)
