Day of Delta
Released July 1 2011. click here for lyrics
"Day of Delta" is a snapshot of a band in constant metamorphosis. They faced new challenges during the writing process: they lost their original bassist of 4 years; they lived scattered across New York and had to travel 100 miles to rehearse; and each member was a working musician caught in the middle of the economic downturn. As their stability as humans and as a band waned, the music began reflecting the dark catharsis happening in their lives. The songs are a portrait of honest frustration viewed through the lenses of relationships, jobs, and the confoundingly nebulous idea of what it means to be a musician.

"Balance" is a celebratory, hyperactive romp through the diverse traditions of American music, warping numerous Western musical styles and passing them through a modern funk/rock filter. Almost palpable is a fiery young-adult passion for ferocious musicianship and performance.
