Recorded live at the beautiful Sky Stage in Frederick, MD on June 7, 2021, one of the hottest days of the entire year. Sky Stage (www.skystagefrederick.com) is a pre-Revolutionary War building in downtown Frederick that functions as an outdoor performance and art space, complete with living sculpture. It is operated by the Frederick Arts Council and it is the coolest single place we've played music.

This is the audio to a live music video we did for the Hourglass Sessions. Three guys - Dillon Douglasson, Tyler Scheerschmidt and Josh Cromwell - put it an incredible amount of work us to make this music video. Dillon and Tyler worked tirelessly on a boiling hot day in a limited time window to set everything up and record a few takes, and get the right shots with the right lighting just as the sun was setting. Then Dillon mixed and mastered the audio, Tyler edited and produced an outstanding music video, and Josh added his animation magic on top of it. We made it extra hard on them by giving them a seven minute piece of music to work with.

This is the first recording of "Filth Castle" we've released as a four piece.


Words by Francis Beringer

Where illogical is canonical
The lives least led are the ones most chronicled

The right to leaky lifeboat does not include preservers
And even if you walk atop the waves you won't disturb us
Turned on by law we get off on technicality
High on your honor we can pay off a calamity

First the soul and then the spine, fine

Unctuous hypocrite grandstands through gritted teeth
The puckered asterisk becomes the coward's sheath
Stand in a bucket, lift yourself up by the leaden handles
And when the lights grow dim we hear the vermin scramble

Where illogical is canonical
The lives least led are the ones most chronicled
