“Hello earth child. You have arrived at the altar of all things, or at least the teleportal that will help transport you,” via a secret code to download yet another piece of drifting ambience, Waka Binaural” ~ chartattack

BY DIVINE RIGHT release a brand new video for “Past The Stars” from “Organized Accidents” available now in blue translucent vinyl in our HDD STORE! “Past The Stars is about space aliens waiting for them to come and get me and my son. It’s also about how being in a touring band is like being space aliens visiting different world and then leaving back into the “black” between planets between cities. Its title was suggested to me years ago by a little boy i met in Ohio.” ~ Jose
