Following a four-year hiatus, Graven has entered the studio to record a new EP titled Heirs Of Discord. The band had this to say about regrouping:

"Talks started earlier this year about reuniting to get this done and it hasn't been easy, as all of us live in a different part of the country now (AZ/MD/NJ/FL). Pre-production has been lengthy, involving each of us home demoing tracks that'd we pass between us all until we felt confident enough to book studio time. Flights were booked and here we are. This will be done in stages over the course of the next few months with a hopeful Summer 2018 release."

Tracking, mixing, and mastering is being handled by engineer Dee Blume at Pristine Audio & Video LLC in St Petersburg, FL.

Graven has also announced that friend Teddy Patterson (ex-Burnt By The Sun, Human Remains, Gridlink) will be "joining us for the album and lending his talent in the bass department." Patterson will record his contributions at Backroom Studios with engineer Kevin Antreassian (The Dillinger Escape Plan).

The new EP will include a cover of the Human Remains song "Human" from their 1996 album, Using Sickness As A Hero. Original Human Remains guitar player Stephen Procopio will perform on the cover as well.

Heirs Of Discord track listing:

1. I Dreamt You Were Dead
2. To Ravage And Absolve
3. A Failed Mask
4. Thieves Of Rotted Ilk
5. Backwards To Oblivion
6. Human (Human Remains cover)
