Black eyes, bruised knuckles, and broken glass: all that was left after the final night of tour.

Months later, at a farmhouse in the rainy winter woods outside of Portland, OR, Arkivist formed. Finding inception amidst the shattered parts, they shut off the outside world to experiment and stitch something together.

They found their way south to Los Angeles and teamed with producer Math Bishop (Two Door Cinema Club, Silversun Pickups, U2) to complete their new songs. The three musicians trade off lead vocal duties, weaving their voices with layers of synths, drums, piano and guitar.
