‘Disclosure’ – the album The new album will be released through Psychonaut Records the 12th of  September 2012.

‘Disclosure’ is the most personal soundscape the band ever made, both  lyrically and musically’, Frank Boeijen says. He continues: ‘The album is a  great marriage between electronic and organic sounds, and has a wide range of  colourful songs. With long epic songs we stayed close to ourselves. We are  incredible proud of this album which is a reflection of what we do best, and our  urge for experiment. The album will be released September 12th and will feature  tracks like: Paper Waves, Meltdown, Heroes for Ghosts, Gemini, Missing  Seasons, See for Miles, Paralyzed. This time the beautiful art work for the  album is made by the artist Carlos Vergara Rivera ( Chile ). The  handcrafted cover art is inspired by our track ‘Heroes for Ghosts’ released last  year.’
