about

The undeniable quality to 'Vortices: A Forward' is that it embodies what Visitors set out to do: form a unique sound and mood around a story as it develops, rather than piece one together around a collection of common band-member musical influences. With this new offering falling into the 'post-something/experimental-heavy-something-else' difficult to nail down genre, it felt only suiting that Visitors' create and publish a comic book entitled 'Axis B' to accompany the release of this concept EP. This dual-offering of an EP and comic book will be followed up in early 2018 with an already-completed full-length album which picks up and greatly expands upon the storyline from Vortices. That album will also be released with a visual component, available in conjunction with a graphic novel created in collaboration with Axis B graphic artist and co-creator, Alex Cooper.

Track Name: Nonce
Nonce Lyrics:
No rose of mine
So sweet and divine
Could cull me
from the Devil's clasp
No angel of mine
With hazel for eyes
Could stop drawing
my forlorn bath
So sleep tonight
So you can shine bright
Too soon mother will pass
Then sleep for your years
So you won't drown in tears
Track Name: Mutineers
Mutineers Lyrics:
I am the future
not anchored to a past
Traveling with an
Even keel on a full ballast
Here and there
Now and then
We get
I am beleaguered
Besieged but unaware
Battling without the armament
A fist of hair
Here and there
Now and then
We get off
There is no future
Without the homes needing leaving
For promises worth keeping
Cutting throats of the sleeping
We get off
Fill me
With innate leprosy
Call ahead
Let them know I'm coming
Cut the cord
We can't afford
To further forget what's already ignored
They all shoot to kill
Stranger still
The sickened love story that befell
Nurtured by science
A lovely alliance
Nurtured by
Panacea
Don't wave me in
Until I know who I am
When the bottom scrapes my knees
I will rest easy
"I've earned my weight in gold"
"I've earned my stake in whole"
When the bottom scrapes my knees
I will rest easy
"They'll pave the way in gold"
"It's what is best for us all"
But does it feel right, right now?
And does it look right? On you?
It could
Stop looking up
At the sight of
A sight
Staring you down
Muzzle on your mouth
Cut the cord
We can't afford
To further forget what has already been ignored
They shoot to kill
Stranger still
The sickened love story that befell
Nurtured by science
The holy alliance
Nurtured in
Absentia
Let us all out!
Just long enough to taste the sun
Let us all out!
Just long enough to fill our lungs
Let us all out!
Because here we come
Around
Track Name: Revisionist History
Revisionist History Lyrics:
She's a Hero
just lying on her back
To freeload
Eliminates this close contact
Sincerity doesn't greet me
With the same decency
Go on defy your design
Take note of the lay
Chase your dreams back through denial
But plan for a cage
Break a sweat try to defend your toil
No more hiding truth in sibylline retort
Discarding the standard candor that's been our norm, from before
A Zero scrawled across her chest
Hah, And the irony, isn't lost
Latently owning my own
Latency
With a muffled hello
Orientating edges
Boxed into a candied pillow
Then suddenly
I'm six degrees from control
Pulled
through the eye
By you
In clover divinity
Content on sending me off
To a fruitless rebirth
Go on defy your design
Punch a hole in the fray
Dress down a fading figure
This doomsday
Track Name: Tempering
Tempering Lyrics:
Here I keep
hinting at
An understudy
Of structural collapse
As she moves below my
roots (chin up, chin up)
She still fills into
the womb
As She moves below my
roots
I'll succumb too
I'd like to sit you down
To tell you what I'm aldl about now
You'd be so proud to hear how my world revolves
It's open season
To stroke through this change
Despite a hook through the leg
No rhyme or reason
To give it away
Its afforded only to chance
You gave me sand
When you were slipping right through my hands
Then I made you glass
To salvage what we had left
Chin up chin up
They don't tell you
That it's much safer on the edge
Chin up chin up
They will just dismiss
Everything and everyone anyway
It's still the same old you
It's still the same old you
She looks like She'd like to
Take a hammer to the head of the beast
The way she's pulling on the end of that leash
She looks like She'd like to
Have the time to get her own pound flesh
before the climacteric
You gave me sand
When you were slipping right through my hands
Then I made you back glass
So you could shatter all I had left
Chin up chin up
They don't tell you
that it's much safer on the edge
Chin up chin up
They will just enforce
Borders as our fait accompli
Walk out to the lights (chin up)
Walk into the lights (chin up)
Alive alive
Enough to know
How dead everything else is inside
