We recently finished tracking 2 songs for an upcoming 7" vinyl release (on Bro Fidelity Recordings). They were recorded and mixed with Jack Farley at Transient Studios Melbourne last December. Tracks are currently being mastered by Jason Fuller (Blood Duster) and will go to press in February. Bro Fidelity will begin taking pre orders soon. The 7" features two brand new tracks 'Somer' and 'Wantok'. Once again artwork comes courtesy of ExoticCorpse. We'll post up some previews soon.

Over an hours worth of new songs have just been recorded for a new album. Some collaborations are happening and we'll shed some more light on those and some other developments soon... It's heavy.

Coming up soon are shows with Black Cobra (USA), Grey Daturas. We also embark on a tour of Tasmania at the end of this month and will be doing some shows in some of ou other guises (Daggers Mid Flight, The New Quiet) as well.
