06.18.20: Album Announcement Over On Patreon: I'll preface this news with a bit of a Patreon update. I've made some changes over on Patreon. First off, it is now a "per release" model as opposed to a monthly subscription. What that means for you is it's cheaper, more convenient, and you only get charged when I release new music (first pledge comes out automatically, each one after that happens only during releases). I also cut it down to three tiers: $3, $5, and $10. Each tier gets you access to the blogs and news I post over there, so check out the Patreon page if you're curious to support. It's entirely optional though, as most news pieces eventually go public, so you will still see certain updates and news eventually for free. With that said, I have revealed the name of the new upcoming album, as well as the cover art for it. I also gave a few details regarding the album. Things such as how far along it is, when the track listing will be revealed, behind the scenes details and more. Again, news involving the album will be public soon, Patreon just gets the first crack at it. I'm happy that it's finally at a point where I can start discussing details, and I can't wait to have it all out for you.
04.28.20: Frail State: Live In Quarantine is available now: Recently, I put together a "live" performance from the comfort of my own home playing the entirety of the self-titled E.P. front to back. It streamed live on Youtube and Facebook on April 27th, and now the VOD is available on both of those platforms. Both versions are the exact same, they just simultaneously streamed on both platforms. The Facebook version can be found here, and the Youtube version can be found here. It can also be found over on the video page of this site.

12.20.19: "I Die: You Die / Home" out everywhere now: The two new singles of Gary Numan's "I Die: You Die" and Nine Inch Nails "Home" are now available everywhere. Check out the Music section of this site for many streaming and/or download links to check out the tracks.
11.30.19: "I Die: You Die / Home" available for free with purchase of self-titled E.P.: Starting today, the upcoming "I Die: You Die / Home" will be available for free when you purchase the self-titled E.P. on Bandcamp. If you purchase before the release date of December 20th, you will be given a download code on the release date. If you purchase the album after the 20th, the two singles will be automatically attached as bonus tracks on the E.P. If you would still like to pre-order/buy the singles separately, that can still be done here. The singles can also be pre-saved to your Spotify account here.
11.18.19: "I Die: You Die / Home" double/single cover set coming out in December: The new double cover/single set I've been working on for a couple of months is finally coming out on December 20th. It will be available on all streaming and downloadable platforms, as well as over on Bandcamp. It's a cover of I Die: You Die by Gary Numan and Home by Nine Inch Nails. I've been wanting to get these covers done for a while now, but I've been incredibly busy. Thankfully, I've finally had the time to sit down and finish the mixes. I think they sound great and I'm sure you'll feel the same way. You can pre-save it to your Spotify account here (other streaming and download platforms will appear at that link over time, so keep an eye out). Over at the Patreon page, $5+ will get it 24 hours early and $10+ will get it 72 hours early (both through download codes at Bandcamp.
8.30.19: Fall Where They May video out now: The official music video for Fall Where They May is officially out now over at YouTube. I'll take this time to talk a little about the video itself. The video has no rhyme or reason in a story sense. I call it a "music video" because it's an easy title to catch onto. Realistically, I envision this in the same vein as background visuals you may see at a concert. Regardless of how I see it, it is indeed a music video. This video has very chaotic and disorienting imagery, mean't to be an assault on the senses. I took some time to think about this in the editing sessions as I wanted this to match the theme and atmosphere the song portrays. This video will likely be hard to watch, so be prepared for it when you go in. Finally, I have added an epilepsy/seizure warning at the beginning of the video prior to any visuals appearing on screen, so I ask that you PLEASE HEED THE WARNING.
8.14.19: Fall Where They May video debuting soon: After an entire reshoot and vast amounts of long edit sessions, the official music video for Fall Where They May is finally complete. The video will be available to the public on YouTube starting August 30th at 12pm EDT. $10+ patrons over at https://www.patreon.com/frailstate will have a special 72 hour early access to it beginning on August 27th at 12pm EDT. $5+ patrons will get 24 hour early access beginning on August 29th at 12pm EDT.

5.10.19: Frail State on Patreon: I've done a lot of thinking on this particular subject, and I've finally decided to take the plunge. I decided to start a Patreon account for Frail State. I feel this band is something I am incredibly passionate about, and I would love nothing more than to continue this for as long as I possibly can. To date, I've spent more money on this band then I probably should have in my position. It's why I thought I'd give this a shot. Understand, this is entirely optional for you. The Patreon account is for those who would like to support the band financially, but all means of support are still incredibly important and meaningful to me. The biggest reason why I started this is because as a one man operation, it gets harder and harder to acquire things and get things done in this project. I figured it might be an interesting attempt at a "you give, you get" system. I encourage you to check out the new Patreon page and I hope you will consider joining. If not, no worries, you'll always still get music from me.
3.18.19: Issues Regarding Bandcamp Links: To those who have tried to access the Bandcamp page through clickable links on this or any other page, it's come to my attention that it will tell you that the links are insecure. I honestly have no idea as to why this is happening, as I've never had this issue with the website before. I haven't received any sort of news of anyone having security and/or issues upon visiting or purchasing from the site. The only thing I am able to come up with at this time is that because it is a fragmented link (bandname.bandcamp.com), that it assumes it is a hacker take over or misguidance. I can assure you the website is secure as it has always been. Manually typing into your own web browser doesn't seem to bring up security issues, only when links are clicked. Don't feel the need to avoid this page because of a false flag, as it's a valuable portion of traffic to my music. I hope you will continue to check it out, as there are interesting things going to show up there soon. Music links are also available on the music page of this site including the Bandcamp link.
3.12.19 - Self-titled EP is out now: Today is the big day. The self-titled debut EP is out now for purchase, download, and streaming. It's available at the following links:

and many other streaming services.
2.26.19 - Self-titled EP coming March 12: Since officially starting work on this EP back in September 2018, I had a lot of doubts as to whether I was going to get this project out. Through procrastination or fear, I felt this was eventually going to be thrown onto the back burner. Thankfully, I was able to prove myself wrong and have something worth presenting. The debut, self-titled album for Frail State will be available everywhere digitally starting March 12th. The albums two singles Fall Where They May and Ritual are available now everywhere the album will be found. Please refer to the links below to pre-order and/or pre-save the album into your streaming libraries. New merch will also follow in the weeks following the release.
