Released on August 14 2007, The album entitled The Unveiling contains 10 tracks, 3 of which were previewed on their Myspace and Purevolume websites prior to the CD’s release.
As for the bands musical style, vocalist Garrett Packer states
“We were never a metal or a hardcore band, I’d say we’re more of a modern rock band with screaming. We’ve come almost full circle. At first we were all melody with a small fraction of screaming. When we got on the road, hardcore was the popular thing and we were always the melodic band on the bill.”
