The Regicide is our second EP, and it is available everywhere now!
This EP is really interesting because most of it was written last year before our first release. We were planning on releasing some of these songs on The New Years Tapes, but in the interest of time we decided to save them and release what we had finished. It feels awesome that we're finally releasing these songs since we've had them written for so long!
The meaning behind the name "Regicide" is derived from the word's actual meaning, which is "the action of killing a king." We decided to relate it to the ungrateful, and generally unpleasant people in the world who blatantly take everything for granted and think of themselves as kings in order to write the words for the title track "Regicide." Luckily, we were able to work with Trevor McKeon (@BoyExtraordinary on Instagram) to put together cover art that perfectly ties this concept together with our band name. The deer, or "the regal king of the forest" as Trevor put it, is wearing a crown and being split in half with his soul coming out, which signifies his death. This, combined with the pathetic fallacy tied into giving an animal a human responsibility, perfectly ties everything together.
