Our newest album is entitled "Planned Obsolescence" and was released on May 9th, 2014. It's a bit more eclectic than our prior work, yet we remain hopeful we can gain some new listeners as we continue to expand our sound.  Although we are still part of the 'Crossover Prog' category here at PA, we feel our sound has evolved into a mish-mosh of heavy prog, eclecic prog, and a little space rock thrown in for fun.

As we have come to feel at home here at PA, we decided to let the PA community have the first opportunity to hear "Planned Obsolescence".  

Prog Archives on our artist page:  http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=6100

As we are entirely self-funded, we try to keep our operating costs as low as possible.  For that reason we prefer to not distribute physical CDs for the purpose of reviews.  That said, we have posted a high-quality MP3 rip of the album (at 320kbps), which you may download from Mediafire for review purposes:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/n38wvapou4a81d5/Disconnect_-_Planned_Obsolescence.zip

For those of you who obsess over lossless audio quality, we are also willing to provide a separate lossless FLAC download link (with 100% EAC rip) on request - this will allow those listeners/reviewers to hear the album in lossless format if they so choose.  If interested in a lossless copy, please send me a PM and a link will be provided for you.

.....and those individuals who really, really absolutely must have a physical CD copy for review - just send a PM and we will get one out to you.   Thumbs Up

And you can also check us out on the web at the following:

"Planned Obsolescence" is an album nearly 2 years in the making.  We spent more than twice the amount of time on this album than any prior release....so we are hoping the effort pays off.

Many thanks in advance for taking the time to listen to & review our music.

Just for the halibut, we've decided to update the Bandcamp download to that neato 'Name Your Price' option. What the hell, we ain't getting rich crafting 20 minute songs...   

That being said, feel free to pay anyway!  :)

In the list of the bands I want to check out, anyway!
Some men are hunting hawks,some men are busy bees,
some louder than a storm,others silent as the trees,
but we're all dressed up as one,noone stands out in the crowd,
We're strangers in this town.

As my colleague pointed out in a prior post, "Planned Obsolescence" is also available on Bandcamp - it's even set up with the lovely 'name your own download price' feature (though he neglected to include a link):

Still hoping to see more reviews/ratings from the PA community.  Thanks!

Still hoping to get more reviews/ratings from the community - download links for a high-quality MP3 rip of the new album are available in my first post.   We also have a lossless FLAC link which I can provide.  If you prefer a physical disc instead, send me a PM.

Thanks!
