We started recording this album at the end of 2019, like millions years ago, when the terms “wearing a mask” was only related to party and Halloween and Social Distancing was the protection against your garlic-eater friend.
While we were looking for a replacement drummer, we thought that would be nice to release something for our audience so we asked our friend Teo to record the Drum parts of songs that we played live for a while but never released.
The plan was to release it early January, so, on board of the DIY train, we spent a few good evenings in the studio and our Xmas Holidays to mix the whole thing.
We were really excited about the result, but when in January we found the new drummer and started writing tons of new songs, we decided to wait and keep the material for a full length.
Then the pandemic, the lockdown, and all the world went on standby. And we wrote our own spacey blues song over lyrics about this weird and continuous lucid dream.
Ok, then. One new song ‘remotely’ recorded, three songs ready since January, the artwork ready since October, and since we don’t know when will it be safe going into our studio again, let’s deliver the world our ep A.C.I.D Compliant.
So this is the story of how the album was put together. With this little gem, we managed to broaden the sound of our previous work by adding a stronger sci-fi vibe to both music and imagery. It’s a link between the past and the future. A bridge between what we were and what we will be.
Hangup My Boots
A fast rock song about the day you wake up feeling like shit and what you want to do is just enter into your starship and leave the planet.
Finally away from everything. Looking for our inner demon…but who’s the real demon?
A Lucid Dream (Lockdown Blues)
When your life suddenly changes and all you see are empty towns, faces behind panes, the dreams are the brain fighting for your balance.
