Call Me King didn’t take time to rest after that tour, instead doubling down on regional shows to build on their already-established fanbase. They began writing for their second LP, which is currently untitled, in January of 2017. They spent the month of August at Glass Arrow Audio in Toledo recording their second album with Jordan DiSorbo.

He used his magic to turn her into a doll, but his spell was disrupted from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for those who are looking to join our dark world in the 13th hour.

notetoselflogo

Post-hardcore group Note to Self explore the pitfalls of living with OCD in their new music video “Akrasia”.  Making use of frantic, black and white cinematography, “Akrasia” was directed by Marcus Eden at the Painted Tiger Warehouse.

We wrote this song to give people insight to what it’s like to live with a mental disorder,” says vocalist Albert SchweizerBeing diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder myself, I know how alone a person can feel. It’s hard for people to understand what we go through every day. This is our way of saying you are not alone, we understand.

“Akrasia” (defined as the state of mind in which someone acts against their better judgement through weakness of will) is available on the band’s new EP Agony Complete via iTunes. The record, which was produced by Matt Good who recently worked on The Word Alive‘s upcoming release, helped the group land a deal with Powerline Management (Asking Alexandria, From First to Last, Eyes Set to Kill, and more).
