Attics To Eden is the second in the set of three in the concept. How is it going so far?
“It was a brutal few months in our rehearsal spot in Chicago. We had poster boards with scribbling and arrows all over the walls trying to assure it all made sense. Music always comes first though and then we weave the storyline around it so as not to influence the honesty of the lyrics. We’ve got the ending all set and will probably start the third in a few months when we’ve decompressed.”

2008 into 2009: TesseracT

December 19th, 2008

Headlining the Scuzz stage at this years Bloodstock and playing the Caos Emergente festival in Portugal!

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
I lost half a tooth eating some Ice Cream in Belgo – kids be careful what you put in your mouth, still I was relieved to find out it was my tooth I found in my ice cream and not some randoms, can you imagine that!
