The 11 song album will be available digitally and on limited edition colored vinyl via Enci Records in North America, Full Time Hobby in Europe and Soundly Distro in the rest of the world.

The band has also shared their new single “Back To Nothing”, which reflects on where you’ve been and how grief can heal and illuminate the future.
