salem session

2019

While we were mixing "The Book of Winter Fireworks", a decade ago, I had an absolute perfect afternoon with Tim Oakley and Jared Phelps recording these demos for what I imagined would be our next full length album. If you have been to any of our shows throughout that time I'm certain you will recognize a few of these gems. Please enjoy these acoustic versions of songs, you may or may not know, untouched by the filthy hands of the people who usually bring my music to life.

Released: 14 February 2019
All songs written & performed by: Lucas Van Scoy
Produced and Recorded by: Tim Oakley & Jared Phelps
