Who are the band members and what do they play?
Zack Dean does just about everything on his own
How and where did you get together?
Zack Dean began this solo project while waiting for other projects in post production to be released.

Have you played any notable gigs, festivals or other events? Likewise radio or TV appearances?
The video has been featured on Gothic World Wide's YouTube channel.
Where was the single/EP/album recorded and who was involved in its production?
The song was recorded in my closet as a demo for my hardcore band Uncoachable, however after adding each track of music I watched it evolve into something completely different and thus give birth to the new sound I'm going after.
Is there a particular ethos behind the single/EP/album or any particular music styles or events that inspired it?
The Ethos for this song is wanting to take a serious look at how drugs and alcohol can really mess up your life over a long period of time.
Can you briefly describe what the song/each song is about? If you are releasing an album then either describe the thinking behind the project or choose a couple of lead tracks to focus on.
Thought I Was examines the feeling of the worst month-long hangover after a decade-long party, and a real evaluation of the horrible acts committed and how they have lead to a very miserable existence.
Were there any notable or amusing happenings surrounding the recording/production of the EP? As above, list whatever might be of relevance.
I really wasn't sure if I was going to release this song or launch a new project at all until I saw the video and realized how powerful this could actually be.
We're going to take a look at real darkness.
