Normally, we take as much time as we need to write records - lots of which is spent procrastinating. With Pacific Myth, we didn't have that luxury - we promised to release 1 song per month on the 15th of each month for 6 months running.
"What we discovered in writing these tunes was the fact that strict deadlines (even if self-imposed) do not allow for over-thinking - something we are incredibly guilty of on our four existing full length albums.
"Surprisingly, the constricting time frame lead to some risks in writing we wouldn't have normally taken - or at least some risks we would normally have had the time to identify as 'too risky' and then re-worked until we felt safe again. For this reason, it's a totally 'go-with-your-gut' record and one we are extremely proud of." They will be offering the title in a variety of bundles and formats. Find detailshere.
