MAGNET magazine has premiered the video for the album’s lead track, “A Sea Of Upturned Faces,” calling the song “lush and ambitious.”

The band features singer-guitarist ROBERT CHERRY, bassist-producer JOHN CURLEY (The Afghan Whigs), drummer-singer JOE KLUG (Wussy) and classically trained keyboardist-singer GUY VANASSE.

Imperial Phase, produced by Curley and the band at ULTRASUEDE STUDIO, furthers the group’s hard-jangle convergence of rock, pop, prog and classical developed on their debut album, Falling To Rise.

As author BILL BROUN (Night Of The Animals, Ecco/Harper Collins) notes in his expansive essay accompanying the release:

“Golds, greens, and sandy hills-of-Hollywood tonalities gild this album from top to bottom. Yet these deeply engrossing pop songs also, cannily, throw gobs of shade right back at it all, often drawing an astute connection between the entertainment and empire-building industries and their self-immolating tendencies, and doing so in croons.”
