The record we've recorded with Gary Arce has been mixed and mastered and sounds amazing.  The artwork for this mini album is currently being created and will go to press later this year with a release late this year/early next.  The record consists of two tracks 'Coventina's Cascade' on the A sSde and 'Traverse Of The Oxen' on the B Side.  It was co engineered by Neil Thomason (Grey Daturas/My Disco) and Mike Shear.  Mastering was ably handled by James Plotkin. Stay tuned for release dates...

Some new shows have been booked in Melbourne over the next 2months and we're very excited to playing with some friends from overseas: Teratova (Japan) & Talbot (Estonia).  We are also playing a show this weekend with Coerce at The Birmingha Hotel in Fitzroy then a showon the 28th of October at the Tote.  Go to the gigs page for further details.

We are now streaming our 2008 debut album  'Black Yolk' in high quality audio (and in it's entirety) at our newly launched Band Camp Page
