The first installment in a "deconstructed EP" that will be released in full later this year, and available exclusively on Bandcamp until then.

Returning to Witch Ape Studio for tracking (the forge where the first EP was hammered out) with Tad Doyle (Brothers of The Sonic Cloth, TAD, Hog Molly), Guest Directors then went into Derring-Do Studio with Aileen Paron (These People Here, Scarlet Season) to cut vocal tracks. Finally these sessions ended up in the hands of the eclectic Steve Fisk (Car Seat Headrest, Unwound, Sleater-Kinney, The Wedding Present, Screaming Trees, Low) at Arundel Gardens for mixing. As in their debut, Guest Directors dish out their signature guitar interplay, intricate rhythms, and yes - reverb. Dark themes highlighted with evocative guitar hooks throughout.

Track Name: Forks
Fell into the fault lines
Strains of the day
You're carrying your grudges
Uphill both ways
And I thought there'd be more harmony
But now we sing to mourn
The place where your dying love was born

Keeping track
Is just a way to keep on sparring
Breathe and count to ten
Changing course,
The river forks
You flow on alone again

Step out of the shadows
Let down your guard
Walk down to the river
And bathe under the stars
In nature is perfection
Paint your dreams goldenrod
But nothing's as real as your facade

Take it back
And try to mean it when you say you're sorry
Learn how to unbend
Changing course,
The river forks
You flow on alone again

(Fell into the fault lines….)
Track Name: Spinning Round
Hey can you get - Can you get me out of here
Another minor threat - Distorted everything you'll ever hear
Symptoms are clues - Do you think, do you think you`ve got it now
Kindly explain - Kindly explain what you really found

Spinning Round
Why don't you come around

I was cut loose in space, a dark star, I couldn't hear a sound
I tried to erase, memories, as i hit the ground

Spinning Round
Why don't you come around

Days go by / you watch
Days go by

Spinning Round
Why don't you come around
