Probably as pure and raw a representation of the many faces of the ferocious mathcore band that you will hear - this release has been in the works for over 3 years and was well worth the effort.

Working in reverse-chronological order, the first four tracks (Howl, Old Mystics, Empiresk and Illuminare) are taken from the Radio 1 Rock Show, presented by Daniel P Carter, recorded early 2013. Three of these tracks were drawn from 2012’s Astraea, along with the standalone, lesser known single ‘Old Mystics’. The latter five tracks are drawn from a session recorded for Huw Stephens back at the beginning of 2008. Drawing mostly upon material from early EPs and 7”s, this session also includes an early version of ‘I Love Turbulence’, a full seven months prior to the release of ‘Hysterics’. All nine tracks were recorded live and mixed at the legendary BBC Maida Vale studios and mastered for this release by Brad Boatright (Converge, Sunn O)))).
