    For those of you who are HERE as fans, but may not be subscribed to the right email newsletter (or you have spam filters that work TOO FUCKING GOOD), here is the text of the update, as sent by the band. It's good to see.

    Greetings -

    You are receiving this email because you have signed up for our mailing list at one point or another. This note is not meant to add to the daily onslaught of click bait and advertisements you will find on the internet these days so we opted to only send to you.

    First and foremost, we hope everyone is being as safe as they possibly can out there. As you know, we are living through unprecedented times.

    This moment has taught us a lot about the fragility of being a human being and how quickly the world in which we took for granted could be flipped upside down.

    Many people are in a tough spot as they grapple with their health and livelihoods. We are all dealing with this in our own ways.

    For us, we have taken an inward approach. Spending large amounts of time with our families has been the silver lining.

    It has also given us the time to meticulously work on music and other projects. The truth though, is that it has been incredibly hard to record the way we want. For instance, the drum room we required for the album was shut down due to protests outside the building for weeks. String sections and outside musicians have still not been able to be recorded due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are not willing to sacrifice the sound we are going for to work around this. We will wait. There are other issues on the horizon but we are documenting it all for a later release when we can tell the whole story.

    At the end of the day it wouldn’t matter anyway. We don’t feel comfortable working on an album this long and then releasing it with no tour in sight. Part of the music we make needs to be expressed through live interaction. While we appreciate the artists who are attempting ‘live streams’ and other events, it just isn’t the way we are choosing to roll this thing out. All of this may change in the future. We are going through this with all of you and feel frustrated as well.

    The good news is we also feel recharged and stronger than ever as a unit. We feel the music we have created is _______. Just because we aren’t updating everyone at every step doesn’t mean that we aren’t working. The news gets tiring. Social media gets tiring. Everyone on the food chain fighting for attention and relevance seems trivial. We have chosen to shut our mouths, dig deep and give you something that we feel can add to the collective human conversation. At the end of the day the music will come when it comes. Until then we hope you and your families all stay safe and sane.

    I just love their mentality and their approach. They're awesome.

    This is so well written, Johnny probably wrote it..

    Nah. There's talk about "meticulously working on music." Banging on a low D for 40 minutes and the engineer quantizing it to the drums is not meticulous.

    I do wonder about this line, and why they left it this way, though:

    " We feel the music we have created is _______. "
    I don't think they want any real expectation for the record. I mean it could say BEST RECORD OF ALL TIME but that means my expectation goes 'ooh so it's better than Abbey road, that's probably a lie' so I would guess that's the reason or they just don't want to give too much away.

    Is the world dying or a social experiment? I'll be in purgatory, I'm really down.
    Might be my song
    I can't wait till things are ok for tours, I would really like to see a show up front again.
    It was amazing!

    Gotta be honest...I can't Stand livestream performances...It seems bland to me.
    Love this message.
    Yeah me too. For some reason, I find it cringe to play in a venue with no one around. The only livestream show I thought was a good idea was the Behemoth one because they did it in an abandonned church, which is fitting for them, and I feel they would have done something like this pandemic or not
