Sleeping at Last
is set to release Atlas an ongoing series of EPs inspired by the origins, emergence and experiences of life. Watch video! Unlike my previous EP series, "Yearbook," Atlas has no end date in mind- it's an ongoing project that I have thematically mapped out over the next few years. (Read a more detailed description of the concept here!) Each year will feature a determined amount of songs/EPs. This first Atlas year, 2013, will feature 28+ brand-new songs, spanning over 6 EPs!
The first EP (5 songs) is called "Darkness" and will release on Jan. 17th exclusively to Subscribers (info below), followed by its official release Jan. 29th (iTunes, Amazon, etc.)! The second EP, "Light" will release a couple months later. The remaining EPs will release periodically throughout 2013.
NEW SONG OUT NOW!
"Overture," the opening song of the project, is available to download right NOW for Atlas subscribers!! Paste Magazine also has "Overture" streaming exclusively here! So excited for you to hear this first glimpse of Atlas!!
Listeners have a choice to either purchase the Atlas Digital EPs individually as they release or to subscribe to the first year of the project. These subscriptions are lovingly called "Passports." There are two Passport options available for Pre-Order now (featuring special Passport-Only perks!!):
Some of these versions have been previously made available on violet underground volume 4.This is the first time these recordings have been made available together completely uncensored in their original order. Yes, we feel that it's been long enough to let Fever out for those of you who want the original explicitly passionate version. Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics
You Wouldn't Understand Anyways originally had two choices of artwork on the cassettes. Both of those choices will be available for your iTunes or MP3 player.
You Wouldn't Understand Anyways- recorded in Denver, CO. the band remains grateful to our friends in Colorado who helped support us then, and continue their support today.

The Violet Burning has released Divine 2.0 - their classic Christmas collection, remastered with two new songs. Or, as the band puts it: "Clearer, Louder, Warmer, Wider = Divine 2.0." The album can be bought as a high download or as a limited edition hand=painted and numbered CD. In addition, "to make it extra special for violets fans, we are donating proceeds towards the Local Shelter in Salem, MA. They do a great work caring for the poor, the needy, and those who need another chance to get to a more stable place in this challenging life. So, enjoy some great music and help our neighbors in need." Visit thevioletburning.com to purchase.
CUSH: The Gift of Hope and Fear
This is song 01 on the upcoming SP3 album. It is also
the beginning of the Story. Each of the album's 07 songs is set in the
context of 07 main arguing points of/for/against Christianity, based on 07
identified 'moments' or movements in the life of Christ. It should be clear
which one this song addresses. The lyrics of each song are written from the
perspective of someone who was 'there', a witness, characters in the Story,
rather than someone who has lived with the result of 2000 years of various
forms of propagandic, cultural, and financial influence on the Story. At
least that is the attempt. To see in something you've seen many times what
new can be seen by looking at it as if it were for the first time.

Either way, thank you for your patience and understanding. While Facebook is the current best way to interact with people near and far, nobody knows what the future of Facebook will be. Conversely, our website has a determinable future, and enables us to more directly communicate and interact with you. So, again, thank you for subscribing.
The release of the SP3 album will be non-traditional. The first song will be released on December 25th, 2012, in video form only. The rest of the songs will also be released in video form as well, one at a time, spread out over the next few months. The release of the digital and packaged album (which will include a great deal of artwork and supplemental material) will be on May 7th, 2013. As it all unfolds, it will make sense why this release schedule was chosen. Previews and early releases will arrive to Subscribers first.
As a Subscriber, you will also receive access to download (if you so choose) the song "Always Disappear," which has been up on the Bandcamp site for quite some time. It will most likely 'reappear' on the record that will be released next year, in a modified form. So this current version will be unique.
Other scheduled items: live, in-studio performance videos, of old and new songs, the KUXH Super G album, and new material by CUSH 'proper', as we refer to it.
Thank you for listening.
