Hey all, Project Tu here. I hope anyone who takes a listen to our EP enjoys it. We also have 3 other ones spanning various rock genres (from symphonic to pop punk to nu-metal) that we've released over the past few months (we make 5-songs a month). I hope you find something you like!

You are probably right. We recorded the whole thing in my parents' basement. A producer would have been nice to have but was not in our budget. This being our first release, our main goal was to just get our songs out there. Hopefully we can afford to record our next album in a real studio with people who actually know what they are doing. I hope you like the songs anyway.
