Tea Party 2017 Transmission 20th Anniversary Tour
“We went into the deepest, darkest depths to bring back the light,” explains vocalist Jeff Martin. “‘Psychopomp’ for example, provides a glimpse into the afterlife, ‘Army Ants’ echoes with imagery borrowed from the dystopian works of Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, while the album’s biggest hit ‘Temptation’ speaks to the all-consuming power of relentless desire.”
“It’s a pretty angry record,” adds drummer Jeff Burrows. “Jeff Martin was in a good head space, but he was going through a lot of personal things that brought out a lot of aggression.”
