"Hey everyone! While there is still plenty of work to be done for the album, we'd like to take a moment to give you some insight into what to expect from it.
"It will have 8 tracks, and will likely have a running time of about an hour. of these 8, there are 3 we have yet to record, including our 16 minute song 'Echoes in a Solemn Chamber,' you know, our short one.
"Check out our videos section for an early, pre-Kenny version of the song, as well as some other neat stuff. Better yet, the youtube page.
"We'll be knocking those out soon enough, and once that's over with the album will be released. In the meantime, keep checking our page for updates, videos, and maybe, just maybe, if you're done with your homework in time for dinner, a little surprise."
