I am thrilled to be able to share with you the news of our upcoming release ‘As It Is On Earth’. As the accompanying video explains it has been a lengthy process and thus makes this news ever the sweeter.
The record is a testament to our journey through the struggle and change of the past decade. The triumphant news is we made it, and in more ways than one. I am so excited at the prospect of being able to continue as a band for a long time and to be able to continue to bring our music to you.
Along with PledgeMusic and in partnership with The David Lynch Foundation, we now ask for your help promoting, touring and completing the release surrounding ‘As It Is On Earth’. The music industry has changed so much for us since the heady days of Resident Alien. And I wonder if indeed we could make that record today in this present climate of confusion? It pains me to think that young bands now may not be afforded the opportunities that I was, robbing us all of the musical connection on which we all relate in some way or another.
By making a pledge here, great or small, you are entering the next phase of our journey along with us. In essence a more direct connection for me to you and you to me. This has always been at the very core of my desire to be heard as a musician and human being. So in many ways this is truly the beginning of something wonderful.
I look forward to this path and hope it will be all encompassing for us all.
Royston Langdon Jan ’13 NYC

We’re going to donate a portion of the proceeds to the David Lynch Foundation. Roy wrote this about the charity -
“Living in New York City I have found it difficult at times to separate myself from the frenetic energy of this place. I had practiced forms of meditation with varying degrees of success. However, in early October of last year I met Bob Roth the Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation and began to study Transcendental Meditation under his tutelage. I haven’t looked back since. Bob described exactly how although meditation of the Zen Buddhist practice is all well and good in the mountain monasteries of the Himalayas and other such serene places, it is much more difficult to ‘dive within’ in the modern world that many of us find ourselves required to dwell. He described to me how like the surface of the ocean, meditation has waves and turbulence along with the world around us, but that by ‘diving deeper’ we reach a place where equanimity pervades much more freely. After an initial ceremony of thanks to those who have gone before us in TM and a week of simply practicing with Bob, I was given my mantra and was off to the races. Twenty minutes, once in the morning and then again late afternoon helps me to reduce the distractions of stress and strain that the demands of life often have on me. It enables me to feel much more connected to myself and therefore improves all areas of my life. I believe that by spreading the message of this simple practice, hopefully it will become more prevent thought the planet, augmenting all our consciousness’s universally thus improving the quality of life for all mankind.”
Thanks for your support. Always….
