The definitive Post Wave recordings—on vinyl for the first time! Recorded by Will Benoit (of Constants), and mastered by Nick Zampiello (Isis, Converge, Torche). Junius has been electrifying rapt audiences with their spellbinding walls of reverb-drenched guitars, haunting vocals and self-made lights since 2004. The band's work is borne of experiments in isolation and asceticism... It’s this austere approach from one of America's hardest working bands that adds a weighty sense of purpose and intrigue to their output. Themes of forbidden knowledge, supernatural and extra-terrestrial phenomena, and religious mythology permeate singer Joseph E. Martinez’s esoteric lyrics, while their music constantly pushes musical boundaries.
"The best soundtrack for reveling in the melancholy of actually living since My Bloody Valentine's Loveless." - Alternative Press
"Genius... an epic audio masterpiece." - The Big Takeover
"One of the most engaging dark rock albums to come out since Joy Division last graced a stage." - Disclosure Fanzine
"This fiery Boston quartet displays the potential to emerge as the bridge between post-grunge and the future of alternative rock." - Amplifier Magazine
