    This music is worth what you make it.
    We will not tell you what to pay for the everlasting gift of song.
    Much of the energy spent, individually and collectively, by three young men over the past three years focused on the creation of this one piece of art. We just want it heard, absorbed, contemplated, discussed, appreciated, misunderstood, loved, hated, shared.

about

Imagine a world where the Day balanced on the edge of darkness, dancing. A swelling tension sending a score of melody over the watchers below...

"In days of old, light shone insistently;
There was no night in which to believe."



Written over three years in the midst of growing new roots, after the move from the sun and Southern California. Inspiration absorbed from Portland's immersive environment.
Recorded in 30 hours at Crossroads Productions studio in Vancouver, Washington, with Austin Aske at the helm. Captured live, raw, un-altered.
Mastered at Tone Proper by Nick Moon.




Disclaimer: We do recommend you let this record play out like a movie, from start to finish. And like any good film, multiple experiences is a must. This album will grow on you in the way love might. Give it that chance.

about

Reign Cycle Portland, Oregon

Born in the brains of two young men under a teary sky.

Nursed from the front seats of a compact car and the garage of a mansion to Portland's ever-reaching natural beauty and its steadfast inspiration.

Set free with integrity and purpose. Given with love.

Track Name: Rise, Endless Sun
In days of old, light shone insistently;
There was no night in which to believe.
I'm not making this up!
Don't you dare doubt me,
For the days of the endless sun
You will soon see.
Track Name: Sell Out
The Devil sold his soul to me.
Red to white turned his cheeks;
I made him blush with the thought that we
Could exist simultaneously.

From within, out.

He came with gold, that God of history,
And still he asked so innocently.
It wasn't enough, but I played it fairly -
Soul for soul, just as he always preached.
Track Name: Too Many Thoughts
There's way too many people in the world,
Way too many people...

I want to see the people dancing,
I want to see the people cry.
I want to see the people dancing and I know...

I want to see the people dancing,
I want to see the people cry.
I want to see the people dancing and I...

Too many people on the floor.
I'm trying to walk, I'm trying to soar
Over you and the floor.
Too many thoughts on your mind.

Your head is in air.
I said it, I swear.
Track Name: I'm Dry
Water is falling on,
It's on the ground above, 'cause I'm below.
It's a moisture I can feel,
Another word I know I've heard before,
Heard before, Heard this before.

Drip drop.

Slowly pulling toward open air,
I'm dry.
And they sing aloud...

Give us water.
Track Name: Cape Able
I don't think you realize what you are capable of.
I don't think you notice at all.

You can shape mountains,
Sprout fountains from your mind.
But I don't think you realize,
Well, really any little thing at all.

I don't think you realize what you are capable of.
I don't think you notice at all.

And I'll sing this a thousand times,
A thousand times, a thousand times,
A thousand times, a thousand times,
A thousand times, a thousand times...
Track Name: Body Bags
The body bags come with compartments of lies are shown.
Pad me up, mister, I'm dying slow.

Float away...
High up above this plane.
Float away...
This smile spreads back and forth across my face.
Float away...
Eyes of a bird, innate.
Float away.

Float away...

I will be here, always.
Despite what you say,
A fragment of me will remain.
