In September of 2018, writing and recording of a fourth release began. For the first time ever, John partnered up with vocalist Matt Smith, and the duo released "Colony" on April 5th, 2019. John & Matt recorded the entire album before the two ever met in person.
On October 4th of 2019, they released "Projections" - their first covers EP which garnered worldwide praise of their alternative metal take on five songs from five different original genres.
On June 26th, 2020, Litost released "Reflections" in what would be the final original appearance from vocalist Matt Smith. The concept album dives into the world of battling an addiction and features 12 songs meant to show a realistic look at the grind, sacrifice and courage it takes to open up about being an addict.
John writes, records and produces all music & artwork for Litost in his home studio in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
