about

THIS ALBUM CONTAINS REALLY GOOD DEMO VERSIONS OF PREVIOUSLY RELEASED SONGS. PLUS A COUPLE THINGS NOBODY HEARD BEFORE.

A few of our contrarian asshole friends have told me that they preferred these versions to the proper "studio" takes. Fine, have at it, jerks. These early versions DO kick ass.

We put a few of these versions on a CDR which we called the "Dial Tone" EP in 2008 so we'd have something extra on the merch table. I think we made 30 copies. Anyway, I dug those demos out of an old hard drive, along with the rest of that initial demo session, plus demo session from '09, and a thing or 2 from our misadventures post "Dog Years".

They were never mastered. So I sent this stuff to Scott Miller at Ancient Temple Recording and he mastered it all for us. Thanks, Scott.

Our music is an aggressive mixture of noise rock, doom, hardcore, and metal wrapped up in a burly sludge aesthetic. All four of us handle vocal duties. We play loud, and with conviction. ... more
