To everyone on here, I want you to know that no matter what is going on in my life, I am here for you guys. I may not always be able to return messages right away but as soon as I can I will always be here for you guys. I love my VF friends and family, you guys have been there for me for over 10 years. If any of you ever need to talk or anything I am always willing to listen and do my best to help if I can.
Also unveiled is the cover art for our upcoming album! Originally this was going to be the EP, "Autobiographical", but on a week of reflection we have decided to go all out with a full length album (still including the collection of short stories of course)!
The album is titled "And We Danced" taken from the song "Dancing In The Black".
The cover art was inspired by the same song and created by mastermind artist, Alfredo Torres of Red Harvest Portfolio, a comic book style artist.
After listening to the album all week and nothing else, the 2 weakest songs have now been identified so will get a complete reworking (or just be cut) before the release. Tonight we recorded most of a brand new track too, "Apollon", which will feature on the album. It is only mostly recorded as it proved far more difficult to sing than anticipated. Oddly, it sounds relatively easy to sing when you listen to it, but caused a lot of strain and hopefully not a lost voice tomorrow. So we still need to complete the recording of the first verse (done the second verse though so it seems to be done in reverse - bizarre hey).
"Apollon" will likely be the closing track on the album as it concludes the tale told in a way of moving forward and healing.

I look into the mirror only to see the shadow of my former self. Is it all a lie? Some change is forced and no choose was there to pick from. I stand frozen as I try to see the glory in my soul that once shined bright through my eyes. Now covered with the grim entitlement of the choices I've made. Why were you the everything I gave myself to? Why did you let me trust you, to lead me a stray only after leaving me scarred? I look past the reflection and wonder where I am. Do I still exists? Will I find someone who won't judge me for what you've left behind? Breaking the image before me, I shatter to the floor. How odd the broken pieces of glass make me feel whole again. How did you make me feel less than myself with your betrayal? As free as I may be from your afflicted obsseaion, I'll always be sick from your touch. To crawl in the earth and sleep till I am healed would take a lifetime I have not time for. There's a shard I hold to the light as a rainbow dances on the floor behind my minds dillusion. Hope, perhaps. Fear, completely. Who could want a broken soul that's been glued together that even the seems ooze your putrid scent. I look in this mirror and see the youth of my dreams trail a lingering thought. One that forces my eyes to recognize that I am strong, that I will love again. If only to love myself. You can't hurt me in this place I've hidden myself in. You have no power over the strings that pull my heart to the bridge of a new being. My reflection may not be one I recognize, but I am still who I am despite the curse you plagued on me. I will see myself up again and make my reflection whole, but never again will you feel the beauty within my entirety.

We sit across a wooden table engaged in the curiosities that become us. I'm enlightened by a strange confidence in a shy moment of your smile. I may of looked away, but I to am shy as I can't stop smiling from a twinkle in your eye. Like looking into an over looked universe search for someone to see it. A gidder flows throw my being in sharing the getting to know you.
