The Pennsylvania-borne band's third full-length represents an exponential leap in sound and cohesion, an impressive and impassioned burn with a wide scope that threatens to swallow everything else surrounding it. Perhaps it's a cliché to say so, but while listening, you might find yourself wondering why people don't make indie rock like this anymore.
In 1993, renowned singer-songwriter Elvis Costello partnered with The Brodsky Quartet to create a unique song cycle culminating in the album The Juliet Letters. Each song takes the form of a letter and in each letter, Costello weaves a rich tapestry of characters and compelling stories. In the spirit of other classical and pop-fusing masterpieces, Costello and The Brodsky Quartet bring seemingly disparate voices together to present something beautiful, unique, and refreshingly new.
Ittetsu Nemoto, a former punk-turned-Buddhist-priest in Japan, has made a career out of helping suicidal people find reasons to live.

THE DEPARTURE captures Nemoto at a crossroads, when his growing self-destructive tendencies lead him to confront the same question his patients ask him: what makes life worth living?
