Enter, for your enjoyment - whether in auditory delight or abject derision, our collaboration with No Sleep Records who proudly present (or so we hope) our new EP: Just Can’t Hate Enough X 2 - Plus Other Hate Songs.
Just Can’t Hate Enough X 2 bridges the gap between our 2013 album “Reach Beyond The Sun” and whatever the next one will be called. On full lengths we like to write varied songs and broaden our musical parameters; here, we just raged. Short, fast, pissed. More MDC than Opeth, though we love both and sound like neither.
Lyrically, as always, we try to isolate aspects of humanity we find regressive and counterproductive to mass wellbeing; analyzing bits of “profound hatred” we’re always spouting off about. The original songs this time around deal with valuing reason, and the negativity often reaped by those who champion uncomfortable truths; the unfortunate and seemingly inevitable hardening of human hearts; and the importance of communication, and how its avoidance breeds contempt.
