A Dream of a Lost City (recorded 7 February 2016 — 23 April 2016)

Our twelfth album overall, and fifth album of new material.

Somewhat of a concept album. Not every track follows through on the idea, but all of the song titles do. In essence, it's a dream of a future world that discovers a 21st century world of our own. How it came to be destroyed is still anybody's guess, though the idea of rampaging children destroying it would make sense, given how much parents give into their brats every whim.

As the intro to What The Statue Saw states, the city in question isn't a dodgy lesbian-only, male-hating nightmare, but simply a world where lesbians were the main demographic and everybody got along well. Until those goddamn children showed up and ruined everything!

Unlike my second album, Surrender Is Not The Answer, this was a an intentional concept album. El alboroto de los niños psicóticos represents the destruction of the city with its noisey first part, and a sad elegy for the city with its ambient outro. The final song, the cats of the city still survive, is a message of hope that perhaps the city can one day be rebuilt.

That said, I'm still not quite sure what the unforgivable sacrifice was.
