The band’s first single ,’The Last Letter’ has been composed during the time when the band first came into being back in 2011 when they were known as 69th Avenue but it has been recorded in the present time with fresh new music. The song was recorded, mixed and masterd by the bands guitarist Moyuchen K yanthan (Infinte Records Kohima). The song is about longing to see and hear from the loved ones that one has lost. Their second single ‘A Tale Of Two Cities’ is about greed taking control of the people, our inner demons misleading us, traitors of the mankind selling their conscience for money, a power that can control the fate of life and death. Its about cowards hiding behind big tables who are responsible for many a disasters. Their third track “Ashes” is about how one passes on after they die, they turn into ashes from the mortal world, their presence fades away into the midst of void. The song also features Sudi Thonger from Skylab. The band draws their influence from bands like Killswitch Engage, Architects and Unleash The Archers and Bleed From Within.
