It's been a long road, but we're finally there. And with the way the album is sounding, we think you'll find it was worth the wait.
The album master is finished, the CD's are in production and the digital albums are submitted to Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and everywhere else you like to listen to new music.
With that, we are happy to finally announce that the official release date for our new album, "Dividing Horizon" is:
It will be available on all digital platforms as well for purchase as CD directly from us in person at shows, and online through our site.
Here it is, the album cover for the new album, "Dividing Horizon"! Our visionary album artist, Valp (valpnow.com), really took the cover and its inlaid symbolism to the next level! We couldn't' be happier with how it looks and how it connects with the message and the music.
Also, here is the tracklist for the new album:
The new album is almost finished. The first couple tracks have already been sent over for mixing, and we continue to work hard to finish up the last of the production on the rest of the songs. The album art is just about finished as well, including new CD and merch designs. Everything is sounding and looking better than we could have possibly imagined, and we truly can't wait to finally share everything with you.

It's been a little while since we released our debut album, "Identity". In the time since, we've been exploring various areas of creativity including a couple music videos and a string of shows all over the West coast. We've strengthened the lineup of the band, and with our new found collective creativity, we’ve been, most importantly, writing new songs. The songwriting process over the last year has really diversified and developed for us resulting in an expanded sound and approach to creation. It has yielded very pleasing and articulate results and we are incredibly excited to give life to these new creations by recording them and letting everyone hear what we've been doing.
Which brings us to the process of recording. Since the inception of the project, it has embodied the spirit of independence and self sufficiency. This has enabled us to be experimental and creative in all ways from music to artwork to business. This mantra enables the potential for limitless creativity and is quite an exciting approach to take. However, independence also finds us responsible for all the non-creative endeavors involved in the business of creating music and delivering it to the people with which it connects. A big part of that responsibility involves the cost of producing music and all else it takes to run a successful band. That's where we need your help.
The next edition of Progressive Underground will be happening at The Dragonfly on October 22nd. This one is going to be special as we are playing with our friends Opus Dai, MAL, and Black Map. The guys in Black Map are coming all the way down from San Francisco for the show, and are then leaving for Europe a few days later to open up for Chevelle.
In addition to the powerful lineup of music, we are lining up some other performance surprises to go with the theme of the season. Make sure to come out to this one!

There are many different ways in which to express creativity, emotion and art. It is as an abstract communication that supersedes the limitations of language as we know it. Equally, and perhaps even exponentially, there are many different ways to receive that connection and interpret the expression within the context of the moment. That moment may vary and differ by physical location, mood, and those with whom we share the experience among a myriad of other possible contextual factors.
Metal Assault wrote a great review of the Progressive Underground show at King King in Hollywood this past week. They praised the strength and diversity of each band as they respectively contributed to the success of the whole night. It is incredibly encouraging for us to hear that the theme and vibe of the whole night resonated harmoniously as we continue to help build a stronger progressive and heavy scene here in Los Angeles. With bands and fans coming togehter, we are extremely excited about the future of the Progressive Underground.
