The band drafted in the talented animated services of Simon Prunty, check out the new single, ‘The Marionettist‘ below:

Bassist, Timmy Lynch [pic below] comments on the track; “The Marionettist is a trip-hop infused progressive rock track with influences ranging from Massive Attack, Oceansize and Karnivool. There’s a unique blend of electronic elements which are reminiscent of early 00s electronic music. It starts quite funky but later progresses to a much darker themed song.
