Sometimes it's better to enjoy that it existed than keep reviving it in some sad attempt to hold onto something fleeting or fading. In the end we were a band in some form for close to 7 years. The immensity of growth and change all of us personally experienced over that time is sometimes difficult to grasp.
This band was a source of joy, frustration, triumph, anxiety, and a million other emotions too hard to articulate in short paragraph. Together we created music that we'll always be proud of. We learned how to be a "real" band, and promptly shirked those stifling and silly realizations. We accomplished incredible and totally intangible things that no one outside of the band will really understand. We made meaningful and long-lasting friendships.
This record is it. It's Book of Caverns last hurrah. It took a long time to write, it took a long time to record and it's taken a long time to release. Sorry for that. Priorities change, people get busy. It happens to every band at some point. We loved these songs, and hated them just the same. To you, they are new and fresh. To us, they are the result of hours and hours of laughter, anger, frustration, tension, joy and friendship. in that way are perfectly representative of our last year together.
Please continue supporting local music. It has and continues to give all of us so much. Start bands, book shows, print shirts, put up posters, attend, create.
Thanks for the past 7 years. They've been fun.
