First off, we wanna say that were completely happy with the outcome and success of Dead End Kings, but truth to be told, we saw a potential in going in a different and unexplored direction with the same material. Our instincts told us that this would be both intriguing and captivating to revoke the loud and aggressive sound picture dominant on the album and instead give way to the atmosphere and tranquillity lurking beneath. This eventually became an urge, so a few months later down the road we decided it was time to re-visit this project, but indulge in new creative experimentation. So, its our wish to release the entire album in a stripped down, semi-acoustic way and turn things around completely and we are asking you, the fans, to help us do this by Pledging the various album formats and other exclusive items we have made available. By doing so you can check back regularly to find out about our campaign and the albums progress The synopsis is simple and album title wont lie; the drums will be dethroned and the distorted rhythm guitars will be uncrowned! Instead, well place the emphasis on the many layers of ambience, with the melodies staying central and the vocal harmonies representing the heart of the album. [...] Is it even possible to make this album more mellow than it already is?
