LAST UPDATED: March 12, 2015
* NEW * AS PROMISED, HERE IS A STUDIO UPDATE: Drums were recorded on Monday, March 9th and Tuesday, March 10th at the The Sound of Rain studios in Edinburg with Charlie "There's no sniffling in the studio" Vela conjuring up the mastery on the knobs. It took a little less than six hours to record the eight songs that are to be on our upcoming album, The Concession Continuum, and now the strings and vocals can begin doing their things. Strings and vocals will be done off-site and will be brought back to The Sound of Rain for the mixing/mastering at a later date (hopefully sooner than later). Coincidentally, it rained lightly both days we were in the studio, which makes our choice of studio that much more appropriate and justified. We have struggled recording the drums in previous self-recorded efforts, so it was decided collectively that the drums would have to be done in a professional setting with a professional studio engineer to give the instrument some auditory justice. Based on what we have heard thus far, this is definitely paying off to the point that all expectations are being exceeded. Severance is rightfully fidgeting with excitement about this upcoming effort, and we look forward to sharing this with you...when the time comes. More updates will posted as they transpire. Thanks...JP

7th Song now complete
As we continue writing material for our next album, we'd like to inform you that our 7th song is now complete, and works on the 8th are about halfway done. The title for our 7th track is "En Tiempos Muertos," and as one may assume, the lyrics are written in Spanish. The song basically toys with the notion that death is the absolute finality, no afterlife, no immortality, no nothing. We are aiming for a 9-song release (with maybe an instrumental interlude), and, of course, this CD will be a dual packaging that will also include our very first DVD. The DVD will be titled, Beyond Barriers, and the new album is being titled, The Concession Continuum. Ultimately, we plan to record before year's end. We will keep you posted on any new developments.

Song 6 is done!!!
The 6th chapter to the upcoming CD has been completed. The title of this track is "Silenced Insolence." This song is basically about the various bigotries/prejudices that one may hold but never reveal. Many people keep their insolences to themselves and come off as being good/tolerant people, but keeping one's prejudices in silence does not make them much better than the vocal bigot. This song is not to encourage voicing one's insolences, but only an attempt to acknowledge that these insolences still exist, even though they are kept in silence. JP
Severance can now be purchased through iTunes and listened to on last.fm JP
