After the success of 1st single "Revolt", which was positively reviewed in over 100 publications worldwide (from Metal Insider to POPDOSE) and gained them over 20,000 Facebook followers in 2 months, the band are now celebrating the menacing and forceful "Master Drone". Complete with new artwork from Shaun Friesen (, the project is moving forward with it's own eccentric and mysterious artistic sensibility.

About the single, Moore says "the Master Drone is certain of his reality, and therefore living through an artifact. He is opinionated, and likely a respectable, ambitious member of society. He could be a motivational speaker, an atheist, a religious leader, a 'life coach' or a serial entrepreneur. He thrives within identity and strives for new identities as he grows old. He's in all of us. He represents our human programming."

Gustavo says "Master Drone turned out quite dark, heavy and to the point - I think it's gonna be a doozy to perform live."

About the Master Drone art and animation set, artist Shaun Friesen says:
"Gradually forming, self-defined and evolving
Exploring the visceral, emotional and textural
From spark to digital star, gravity, gradually
Moving through a world unravelling.
Future culture is a robotic simpleton to ever-Overwrite."

Shaun Friesen is a whole system designer, an award winning animator, and a novelist. With a fine art degree in computer technology and over a decade of experience in the field of visionary art, Shaun has performed live animation and displayed his work all over western Canada and in New York.

Oh, the fuse is lit
We're dripping down
Walls of eggshell white
Garden of Eden
Smeared across the floor
The world you once knew is no more

It's clear to see the sign is us
All we worship modeled after us
Our own webs woven over us
Spiders dangling like flies

"Sorry my son but you're not blessed.
A fool in your last life...a rat in the next."

Singing the songs that everyone knows
Dancing in time like a marionette
Always at war with an unknown foe
Paying off an inherited debt

You may be a Master Drone
But you're still under control

Deny the culture
Strip down to the bone
Then you'll find yourself
Standing alone

Here we go searching
Begging for strange
Oooooooh give us the prime cut
The promise of change

Snake coiled around the lamb
Each cog writes the new program
Spin the wheel for healing hand
Roaming free because I can

World of mimicry
Not an original thought
Billions of teachers
No one left to be taught
