about

"The Providence, Rhode Island duo hurtle themselves into waves of apocalyptic sludge and dire noise with zero regard for their own safety; the riffs come fitfully, lurching and pulling like a rabid dog straining at his leash, as vocalist Kay Belardinelli exorcises her demons in real time, gasping for air and calling down thunder. The lyrics tackle the pain and power of recovery and trauma, imbuing the album's aggrieved, menacing character with a deeply personal bent that only deepens its sense of overwhelming darkness."
— Kim Kelly

Track Name: Fill Your Lungs
I've been looking hard down a cliff's edge. Eyes to the ground, the wind on my back.

At night I walk to your yard, watch the light go out. Rub this stone in my palm, watch that window. I didn't think–

And on the highway, in a car. I see metal, I see walls. I didn't think I could be free.

So I said,
Focus. Focus the rage. Fill your lungs.
Track Name: Weather the Storm
Shame. Ungrateful. You hid.

Patience is a virtue. Silence and detach yourself. Crush each of his demons.

Weather the storm. Bury your heart. To heal him is to heal yourself.
Track Name: Sick of It
I just wanna have a good day today. I'm tired. Keep trying to erase this. So sick of it. How many times have I tried to rid it?

I just wanna have a good day today. I'm sorry, can't be your perfect victim. Do you get it? Can't I just be human?
Track Name: To My Dead Brother
Cut from the same cloth. But now the threads are thin, the threads are bare.

Twelve years.

The flame is frail, waiting in the wind. Today a song came on and it grabbed me by the gut. I fell to the floor, wishing for our family that’s gone. I think of you a lot... As time goes on, I think of your even more. I follow your scent, but you’re only in the air.

I wish I knew the drugs wouldn’t work. I wish I knew the fucking words.

Each boy is a mirage. Each man, just a mirage. I wish I knew what I know now, wish I knew to say the words.
