In a recent PropertyOfZackinterview; Brian Weatherbox mentioned that the band's new album has been recorded and now they are working on finishing it and mastering it, as well as looking for labels.
We have a new record that we recorded. After trying to mix it ourselves with friend’s help, we realized we were in over our heads. Now we’re slowly getting to the point where we have some money and want to mix it. It’s been a really long, drawn out process.

After seven years, we've decided to put Gifts From Enola to sleep. For those who didn't pick up on the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) hints, we knew that A Healthy Fear would be the last thing we were going to do for a long while. The band slowly became a full-time occupation over the years, and once we all graduated college, we had the opportunity to hit the road non-stop and hang on to the music industry zipline by our fingertips the best we could. Despite all of the incredible experiences we had, the experiment left us vehicleless and in financial discomfort after a handful of years of grinding it out full-time. We decided to let our...
Plenty of bands show that youthful raw energy right out of the gate, but the special ones know to harness it within strong songwriting. Ohio five-piece Envoi is one of those bands that just gets it.
