“DEVOLUTION [Black Box Theory]

It’s been a LONG while, but our NEW single is coming.
Scheduled for a November 17th release!!!

“DEVOLUTION” is a social commentary on the human condition.
Inspired by the Black Box Theory, the rhythmically punishing first single is laced with beautifully destructive lyrics provoking psychological thought and discussion.

We hope you love it!!!
