Today marks the release of "Roadblock," the second offering from the forthcoming EP. True to form, the new track comes with an accompanying music video, animated by Nina Hirten at Oh Just Peachy Studios, with live footage expertly shot and edited by Aaron Gun – the same director behind the "Venerate" video.
"Roadblock" underwent mixing by Jim Homan of Screen Door Studios and mastering by Will Putney of Graphic Nature Audio.

Bassist Dustin Treinen added:
