Their Debut LP is Mixed and Mastered by Kris Crummett (Sleeping With Sirens, Dance Gavin Dance, Closure in Moscow, Issues). The album “Reverie” is a story, narrated by Katsuben (Kurt Travis), that follows a boy named Tsukuyo (Andrew Brittingham), through his battle with the evil that has consumed his past, present, and his future. In this story, he is constantly reminded of the words his mother, Tennin (Darina Kayukova), said in her last hours, which give him the strength to overcome. Tsukuyo is accompanied on his journey by Ninjen (Garret Rapp); and Mizuchi (Aaron Gillespie); and Susanoto (Sam Kohl); who are from Songkran. Songkran is a city underwater that becomes home for Tsukuyo where Ninjen, Mizuchi, and Susanoto help him to find his strength to avenge his birth place. "Reverie" is explained in the music and lyrics alike.
