A new lineup breeds a new album, though this one being an interesting exception to the rule! Genericist was created by just two people. One of them is long time member Joseph Parry and the other is new guitarist Juani Cummings.

It talks about the generic attitude of society and the media today and reveals the fact that we should fight against it. Continue to push ourselves to greater things.

The album cover was shot in Joe's home studio by tha pair taking in turns with the camera.

Joe says "I remember asking Juani what he had mask wise for us to shoot with and he mentioned these old pirate masks from a halloween gig. One was silver and one was gold, naturally being the douchebag that I am I opted for gold and left Juani with the peasant silver hahaha!

I set up the lighting and took a shot of Juani then we reversed roles, I blended the two shots together in Photoshop, as you can see I'm on the left and he is on the right. Loved how it came out and represents us almost perfectly. Except we're not piratey at all... I even pay for my Photoshop hahaha!"

Track Name: Severance
I turn the nation of my prism mind over and over,
To seek the truth that you left her again,
I find myself at wits ending, Offer me this,
Offer me again I dare you,

Do it,
Say it,
Feel it,
Be it,

In glass freedom,

Do it,
Say it,
Feel it,
Be it,


Captivated til the end again,
Drag me home and drown me deep,
Feel myself escape, please,
Let me kneel again, severance.
Track Name: Indecision (Bonus Track)
I remain, I will wait for your soul,
I have changed, you're not the one for me,

God you're so delighted,
By indecision,

Chained by false perception,
You've gained my eyes to burn, for now,

For now, now,
For now, now.
