‘Machinery’ is the band’s second album and follow-up to their 2009 debut ‘Wait For Evolution’.

“I often hear we sound like a machine when we play live,” says lead singer and songwriter Torre Florim. “I thought it would be fun to expand on that on this record and emphasize the mechanical elements in the music. We played a lot of rhythms, and also created crazy sounds with the guitars. I didn’t want to exclusively focus on the rhythmic parts, but instead wanted to change the way we approached the tools of a conventional rock band setup. During the process of writing and creating the music, the album developed an industrial flavor that reminded us of a machine.”
