      Have they set a release date yet?

        Haven’t seen a date, but i believe they said it would be a 16 song 2 disc project? Interesting. It’s their first “full production” album in 5 years. Of what I’ve heard, some of it sounds orchestrated and some of it sounds kinda like the Come On Home project, no doubt with Autumn’s Isaacs-influenced style coming in more.
