Vocalist Pete said, "This is a major achievement for the band and we are very proud of what we have done thus far. We believe the album is pushing Rock and metal into 2013 and further and that it has something new to offer. It was a pleasure working with Independent Element for the video, and it was nice to break away from the standard formula of video clips around today. Hopefully it shows a band chemistry, a humorous side and a musical side to boot. Album reviews for F.E.A.R have been pretty overwhelming to say the least and i am pleased to say we seem to be getting talked about. We look forward to the future." More...
