What if artificial paradises could last forever?

PRE-ORDER the album now

 

AWAY/ABSENT is a song about not being here, but not being quite there yet, either. It’s a frozen frame in a huge leap to the void, as if one could endlessly cherish the joys of letting go, without having to hit the ground, ever. But this time, your daily dose of evasive drugs is going to taste a little bit more sour.

Prepare yourself for A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER.

Produced by the much sought after Jaime Gómez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Ghost, Ulver), A YEAR WITH NO SUMMER means the perfect soundtrack to the next apocalypse. Flirting elegantly with alternative rock, electronics and extreme metal, it provides the listener with a full-bodied and brooding experience, one that she will find very hard to forget.
