You can pre-order the album here on vinyl. The band have two different pressings available at the moment.
The band have also taken a step back from touring right now while vocalist Garrett Russell takes some time to seek treatment for mental health issues.
He intends to enter a ‘psychological rehabilitation clinic’ to seek help with those issues.
“I’ve written and re-written this post a dozen times. But either way, the conclusion is the same. So I’ll just tell you what’s going on.
My name is Garrett and I struggle with mental illness. If you’ve followed our band closely, you might already be aware of this. I’ve done my best to be open about my experience, as I tried to set a positive example for others who struggle.
You are not defined by your disorder. You are not your disorder. I believe you are a human, made in the sacred image of God. Whether or not you believe that, I hope you at least realize how mathematically unlikely your existence is in this universe.
However, it’s one thing to talk about mental health… and it’s another thing to take care of it. I have been neglecting my own mental health, and unfortunately, I was given a harsh reminder over this last week.”
