Return from the Void – December 18th!

The Stars are Aligning, the Pyramids are Rising and the new EP “Return from the Void” has made its way up from the surface to the Mars Home Base. Get ready for new Mars Metal for the first time in 4 Martian years! Release details to come, but for now — spread the word across the Universe!

Thanks to John L Robertson from Fuzz Goblin for capturing this. Our debut of “Black Leather” (one of the 5 songs on our new EP!) at our first show with Bradley on guitar (much thanks to Gravitoyd Presents ! ). The song has changed A LOT since we recorded it. (think of this as the prototype) but this is still rad. Rock on!!
