Official press release:

Bereft, a Los Angeles based doom band featuring members of Intronaut, Abysmal Dawn, Graviton, National Sunday Law and ex-The Faceless vocalist Derek Rydquist, has posted a new track on their Facebook page. Visit and "like" the band to listen to the exclusive track.

"This will give everyone a taste of what this band is about; dark, depressing, doom," commented vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott. "Definitely different from what we do in our usual bands. It's heavy as hell and we're all really proud how the record and collaboration came out, and we hope people feel the same way. On this particular track Sacha and Derek D. worked together on the music while Derek R. and I worked on the lyrics. I've always envisioned vocal tradeoffs with Sacha on this one, ever since the demo he sent me years ago, so that's what you hear on the chorus.

"This project has been on the back burner since 2008, so we hope people enjoy finally listening to it as much as we do. Come check out our first show ever on September 30th at The Handbag Factory in Los Angeles!"

The debut album from Bereft was recorded and mixed by drummer Derek Donley. Mastering has handled by Brian Elliott (Exhumed, Dying Fetus) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL.

Bereft is:

Sacha Dunable - guitar, backing vocals (Intronaut, Graviton)
Derek Donley - drums, backing vocals (National Sunday Law, Graviton)
Charles Elliott - vocals, guitar (Abysmal Dawn)
Derek Rydquist - bass, backing vocals (ex-The Faceless)
