The band commented:
We’re so glad to finally get to share this record with the world. ‘Your Mess as Much as Mine’ is our second album and even though it’s just five songs it streches up to almost 20 minutes. We’ve been working on it for a really long time, developing into a more focused and heavier sound. It still has a lot of similarities with our first record but we draw more influence from heavier music we like. There might be less of a screamo feeling to it, but never at the cost of intensity. It was recorded by the same guy we’ve used before (shout out to Ulf Blomberg, Hoborec) and we feel like we’ve really been able to take a step forward with him this time and produce a record that we feel stands out both in quality and aggresiveness. Also Brad Boatright at Audiosiege mastered it, which really helped making it sound as good as possible. We hope you’ll like it as much as we do!
