OLD GODS, who released their debut, self-titled EP last year, is currently hard at work writing new music for what will be the bands first full-length album. Tuttle explains, “We have five songs completed so far with Derek and I sketching out the storyboard for the flow of the music which will have a cinematic spin to it. Stylistically, it will combine the fury of classic Hardcore/Punk with the epic nature and purpose of bands like Pink Floyd and the Who.”
