The band released its first full-length CD titled "Regrets, Rehab, and a Refill" in the Spring of 2011. The 15 track, rookie-release was a raw and largely un-produced album. Mostly confessional songs of trial or perseverance, it flet like it was ripped directly form pages of a journal and set to music.
The 2nd album “Recoil” was released on July 31st, 2014. Their sophomore album was an evolution of sorts. Similar in it's raw production and confessional lyrics, this album also offered their first cover song "Highway Junkie"; a high-energy rendition of the Chris Knight classic.
Their 3rd studio album, Gasoline Diary, was released in 2016. This album offered 11 new originals with a higher degree of studio polish. Gasoline Diary delivered not only through experience in the studio, but the album also felt like a step forward lyrically.
Album #4 "ASHES TO ANTHEMS" is scheduled to drop on July 4, 2019. The band released their first single "MERCURY RISING" off the upcoming album in early 2019. Recorded at Fort Worth Sound Studios with the legendary Bart Rose in the producer's chair, this album is expected to be well the center-piece to thier body of work and another big step forward for the band's studio works.
