The group is made up of five unique personalities that bring their eclectic influences to every song. Soaring, multi-part harmonies combined with a driving progressive metal sound, best describes the group.
The band feel the defining message of Mental Truancy is that everyone goes through stuff. We all go through something. Everyone responds differently to those experiences, and some may persevere, and others may succumb. The point is, we all individually go through this emotional rollercoaster of life and may respond differently to similar situations, but we all collectively should be able to have the empathy to relate to each other’s individual experiences.
Mental Truancy was recorded, engineered, mixed, produced, edited and mastered by Matt Grosse and was co-produced by Mark David and Travis Ebner. The album Art is by Brittany Sutherland AKA OpalAcorn.
