Guitarist Greg Burgess had this to say about the new album: “With ‘Formshifter,’ I think we kept the sound a lot of our fans love about us, but achieved them through certain compositional challenges. Be it style, or genre mixing, I believe that we seamlessly applied certain elements we didn’t have on ‘Fragments,’ and it added a color and dimension we didn’t have before.”
“This album to me indicates the future of the band but nods to our past as well,” added guitarist Ryan Glisan. “It, to me, is more of where I have envisioned our band being since I started the band a couple years back, it relies on similar songwriting structures and musicality but adds more groove and memorable riffing than our previous efforts.”
