August Update + Album Announcement

After much delay, we're extremely excited to announce that our new album is finally coming out! We're calling it Bending Light, and we're aiming to get this album out by the end of September! This album is the culmination of a lot of time and hard work, and represents a HUGE jump in our sound compared to 2013's Spaces. While Spaces was written as a solo experiment by one guy, Bending Light is a true representation of where we are as a group, and where we're going. We're super excited for you all to hear it. We'll announce the artwork and pre-order details soon, so stay tuned on all our social networks for more info! 

This video was shot and edited by our good friend Bradley Whiteside. Thanks again for putting this together for us!

April Update

What a killer month it's been. We're hot off the heels of a really fun show at the Oakland Metro opening up for Intronaut, one of my personal favorite bands, and a huge inspiration to me as a musician. We played for one of our biggest crowds to date and met a ton of new friends and fans thanks to this incredible opportunity.

What's next? ISLES is halfway done recording our still-to-be-titled follow-up album; we go in May 9-10 to finish tracking it. After that's done, we wait for the mixes to be finished and then send it out to get mastered, while we finish up the artwork and CD layouts. It's going to be a really busy month as we get this done. Hopefully we'll have this album out mid-June. We can't wait to share these new tunes with everyone. 

Almost forgot to mention that we're working with one of my really close friends, Bradley Whiteside, who's been following us along our trips to the studio and to a couple of our shows the past few weeks. He's working on a spotlight & documentary on us, so be sure to stay tuned for that!

Make sure you're following us on BandsinTown so you can find out when we'll be in your neck of the woods. You can do that here. See you guys soon!

January Update

It's a new year and we have a lot planned for the upcoming year. Writing for the new album is almost finished, and we've announced a few shows in the upcoming months, with more to come. If all goes according to our plan, we should begin recording the new record in February, and hopefully we'll get it out not too long after. In the meantime, be sure to track us on BandsInTown so you can stay up to date on when we're coming to your town, and follow us on your social network of choice. Check the social networks in the navigation pane up top for links to our accounts. Stay tunes for more updates soon!

November Update

We just finished up our last show of the year at Neck of the Woods in San Francisco. We had a great time playing there, and our good friend Austin Cairns managed to take an impressive video on his phone of our closing number, "Chasing Ghosts." 

We're taking December off from playing shows to finish writing our still unnamed full-length album. We'll be re-recording a couple old tunes, but this will be mostly new ones. I can't wait to reach this finish line with this album, as I'm already incredibly proud of what we've already written for it. We're hoping to get this bad boy out by January or February at the latest, so stay tuned!
