6. Live Another Day
7. Divide The Blackened Sky

9. Last Days Of Life
Divide The Blackened Sky was recorded at VanHowes Studios, Greenhouse Studios and Renegade Studios in Vancouver, BC – a record vocalist, Crispin Earl, proclaims to be, “a much darker and heavier effort than our previous works. It depicts all the hard times we have been through over the last couple of years.” The majority of the album was self-produced and recorded by the band. In addition, production on the first single, “Bitter End,” was handled by world-renowned producer, Brian Howes (Nickelback, Hinder, Skillet, Puddle Of Mudd, Rev Theory), and was mixed by Jay Van Poederooyen.
