Vocalist AJ Channer says, "This album is the personal narrative of a minority man living in major cities and being American," he explains. "There's a socio-economic theme throughout the whole record that carries from each song to song. It's all about the underdog. We've all had to fight for everything we have in this band. The political climate in our country is quite racially and socially charged. There are a lot of issues and energy people are expressing along with misguided hate and anger. I want to channel this in music that can resonate. This is where we come from and who we are as a band." In order to properly capture this vision, the boys retreated to House of Loud Studios in New Jersey to record with David Bendeth (Paramore, Of Mice & Men, Breaking Benjamin). They spent a month in the winter of 2016 tracking what would become Narrative. "There's no crying in Bendeth's dojo," laughs AJ. "He really pushed us, and we grew in a short period of time. The band takes on a life of its own with this record." "I want people to feel empowered when they listen to this record," AJ leaves off. "Come out of the experience knowing somebody thinks like you. You're not alone." Narrative track listing: 01. Public Enemy 02. End Transmission 03. Excuse Me 04. Composition 05. Evolve 06. Pretenders 07. Diversion 08. In Spite Of Doubt 09. Lifeline 10. Into The Blue
