We tracked the final numbers to be included on “Over Opiated in a Forest of Whispering Speakers” on Sunday, July 5, 2020, @Raincity Recorders with JJ Heath. I could argue this was one of the best recording sessions I’ve been a part of. All photos were taken by our pal Colin Bradley. Our 4th album will probably take a long time to make as well. Art is difficult lol – Dave
Damn, the time has flown. We are recording the final two songs for our 3rd record on July 5, 2020 @ Raincity Recorders in Vancouver. The songs are entitled “Midnight Marauders” and “Let’s Enjoy the Aimless Days While We Can.” I have never been as excited about a recording session or new songs as I am about these. Max, Alex, and I have pushed our level of preparedness for these sessions to new personal heights. I’ll post some pictures of the sessions afterwards. Stay safe, everyone.
Ps some toys to be used on the recording.
We are planning our 4th record as well. http://theobelisk.net/obelisk/2020/02/03/seven-nines-and-tens-over-opiated-in-a-forest-of-whispering-speakers-willowtip/
It’s been a while since my last post. Aside from radio silence on this page, we have been working hard behind the scenes arranging the release of our 3rd record. We are signing to an excellent (understatement) American record label and will be announcing the signing within the next couple of weeks. After that, we will be announcing a release date for the record (yes, they are pressing the album on wax) and a ton of other news. We are going to gig the hell out of this record so if you’ve ever wanted to see us play live, get ready for your chance. – Dave Cotton
Our 3rd album Over Opiated in a Forest of Whispering Speakers is nearly finished. The final song is being mixed and mastered as this is being typed. We will have all the release info, tour plans, and the first single as soon as humanly possible. Until then, for fun, I included some texts below from friends that I sent some of the songs from the album as they were freshly mixed and mastered to see what they thought:
Things are starting to come together for our 3rd record. We will have a single release date and a whole wack of other info for you very, very soon. In the meantime have a peek at what Conrad Keely of Texas art-rock legends And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead came up with for our album cover.
We are mixing “Over Opiated in a Forest of Whispering Speakers” as this is being typed. We cannot wait for you to hear it! Lot’s of news, show announcements, and other stabs in the social media dark on the horizon.
We have dusted off some old songs (one of which has never been played live before) for tomorrow night. We hope to see you there.
I did an interview with the Georgia Straight about our Boxset, Split with Heron, and upcoming 3rd record.
Tomorrow night we will have our Cassette Boxset “Satisfy the Faction” for sale in addition to our brand new Split Cassette release with HERON
We recently recorded our 3rd record at Raincity Recorders w/Matt Roach. The working title of the record is Over Opiated in a Forest of Whispering Speakers.
The tracklist is not in order but as follows:
- Fight for Your Right to Partial Relevance
- Popular Delusions
- Throwing Rocks at Mediocrity
We’ll be announcing a release date asap. Those fans and followers who always wanted more singing in our sound should be happy with this new recording.

Thanks to Max Cayer and COUP SUR COUP records for their passion and drive in assembling the pre-order for our cassette box set “Satisfy the Faction 2008-2018.” You’ll find every note we ever recorded in the set. In addition we are gathering some old b -sides and live tracks as well.
You can pre-order the set at the bandcamp link below:
Holy hell, did we ever have a blast opening for Boston based prog doomers Elder, on August 10th. The supporting bands Serial Hawk, Dead Quiet, and Bushwhacker were all stellar as well.
In closing, we are recording our 3rd record “Over Opiated in a Forest of Whispering Speakers” with Matt Roach starting Sept 23, stay tuned – Cotton / Seven Nines & Tens
