“Thematically, the album touches on subjects such as the philosophy of being but a blip in the midst of the cosmos. Keep that in mind when listening to “Far Reaches of a Wandering Mind”. All The Way is simply about perseverance and conquering obstacles. And we couldn’t very well release our debut EP without stickin’ it to the man, could we? Especially considering the idea behind “Pockets Out” (we’ll leave that to your imagination). Song 4 is about trying to make sense of the world we live in and how injustice is brought upon by the powers that be. A huge thanks goes to Simon Beach, who made our recording experience very enjoyable and also poured his heart and soul into the production. He didn’t just record, mix and master the album. He made it as if these were songs of his own and worked his ass off to get them to sound just right. He also accompanied us on back up guitar for the recording of the secret song, as well as group vocals in the song “All The Way”.
