Reporting live below The gently rolling waves Off the Palos Verdes Peninsula A spiny purple menace is ravaging What should be a thriving kelp forest Details after the break... Millions of sea urchins Scrawny, diseased, and desperate for food Have overrun the shallow seafloor Devouring kelp at an astonishing rate This is Brock T. Johnson signing off
Once in a while you hear that sound From out of the blue You come unwound Once in a while you hear that roar It brings you down To the floor Once in a while you hear that thing A constant sine A piercing ring Once in a while you hear that buzz It's something you wish That never was
Cited in folklore as words from the wise A true conspirator with the darkest of eyes Scanning the land like a sky-high priest Alerts his allies and revels in the feast Raucous and agile with a sleight of hand Known by many as a pillager of the land A problem solver of the corvid type Unlike the ways of the illusive Snipe
Five hundred years we waited And now we rise The end of your age Beginning of ours In this year with man's thoughts turned towards The many ills he's brought upon himself Man has somehow forgotten his most ancient adversary The Gargoyles... Five hundred years we waited And now we rise The end of your time Five hundred years And now we thrive The end of your age Beginning of...
No one said tomorrow had to be more of the same The universe is infinite and subject to change You're changing... All your molecules are slowly rearranging No matter who you are The atoms that formed you were forged in a star Constantly evolving in pleasure or in pain From seed to bloom and womb to tomb You're Subject to Change You're changing... Consuming and eliminating Your cycle is not yet complete The cycle's still circulating You're changing... Part of a process that's self-sustaining Till entropy stills energy And there's nothing left remaining

Transmission Cinema took a full year to record, mix and master.
From sweltering temps, torrential rains and leaking roofs, the band never lost focus on their goal of making an album of diverse yet accessible sounds.
Jim Harris added his songwriting skills this time around which contributed to the album's balanced mix of guitar and bass driven tracks. Vocals adorn the first several songs and feature guest singers, while the second half is instrumental. The I.R.D. has always been more than just a band. It's a collaboration of minds among friends.
