Mask of Lies was very well-received, but as with any debut album, the response and reception has helped shape the direction for album #2. Writing is not yet completed, but with seven songs done, the direction is starting to take shape. Overall, the songs are heavier, more concise, but more well-rounded on the whole. The band has lost none of their progressive tendencies, but has worked to incorporate that mentality more fluidly throughout, while also pushing up the tempos, pulling back the overall track durations, and expanding their musicianship to a new level.
The band will once again record at Brian J. Anthony Studios, so fans can expect a minimum of the industry-standard production the band established on Mask of Lies. The album will feature a handful of TBA guest musicians, and again will feature artwork done by one of the best in the business. Anyone who purchased a copy of Mask of Lies knows that the band is fully dedicated to giving fans their money’s worth and will deliver nothing less than a great quality product!
Tracking is tentatively scheduled to take place between February and May 2014, with a release currently planned for September/early fall 2014! Stay tuned for more updates and thanks to everyone for their support!
Risks and challenges
As with any album, time and money are major factors. We're trying to raise as much money as we can up front so that we can book the necessary studio time with no concerns and forge ahead at a productive pace. The project cost of the album is about $6,000 when all is said and done, so our ultimate goal is to raise at least twice what we're asking for here. There's many variables at play, but we promise to deliver the best quality product we can in the best way and least amount of time possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
