It feels alive. The songs are incredible. The production, the performances… I mean, this album chews up the first album and spits it out. It’s probably one of the best things that I’ve ever done, and I’m really, really proud of it, man. I’m proud of the work that me and [producer] Jay [Ruston] did. And people are going to… Even if it is a slow burner out of the gate, people are gonna remember this album.”

In total, twenty-six songs were recorded for “CMF2”, including first single “Beyond”. You’ll be able to hear the full-length LP as of September 15.

The band shot the official video for “Beyond” in California’s Mojave Desert with director Dale “Rage” Resteghini (Hatebreed, Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium).
