The digital download of the new album, Identity is now live in our web store, http://socionic.spinshop.com as well as on Amazon and iTunes. The download from our store contains the high resolution artwork for each of the 5 concept artworks in pdf form as well as a download of the official guitar tab for the album. There is also a bunch of new t-shirts, posters and stickers, as well as packages containing different items, so be sure to check out the store. All merchandise is now heading to the warehouse and will start shipping at the end of the month, the week of Halloween.
We will be doing a short run of dates up the West coast at the end of October to promote the release of our new album, "Identity". The Origin of Identity Tour will make stops in LA, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. Check out the EVENTS page for details. We're excited to finally get out of Los Angeles to play music, and hope to meet many new people and gain new experiences in the endeavor.
We are very proud to reveal the cover art for the upcoming album, "Identity", to be released digitally on October 16th on iTunes, Amazon and direct purchase from this site, which will contain special concept artwork describing each song. The expression and exploration we pursue resonates through mediums other than that of songs and audio, and as such we spent much time developing the artwork and symbolism behind it for the band and this album. That said, we are extremely excited about how this and the other pieces came out.
The first revision of the new website has been completed and will set the framework for the release of upcoming audio and visuals. As a living organism, the site will continue to evolve and mutate as it grows, gains experience and moves out of beta closer to its realization of individuation. Future phases will have more features and immersive content. This is the central hub of The Socion.
Recently we released the experimental video, "Identity of Socionic" which contains abstract symbolism and insight into some of the deeper meaning behind the coming album, as well as the project as a whole. If you haven't yet seen it, please click this link or video below and leave a comment to let us know what you think.
We are extremely excited to introduce the graphic illusionist Valp as the artist who is fulfilling the vision portion of the upcoming concept album. We feel we couldn't have found a more talented artist to execute the abstract symbolism and imagery of these pieces, and as such we can't wait to show them to you when finished.
