Portraits of Past Cypress Dust Witch EP - released in Japan

We just got back from an 11-date tour of Japan in support of the Japan domestic release of our new EP - Cypress Dust Witch - on Cosmic Note Records.

The CD was sold to fans at our shows, but is still making its way to distros and shops. The mighty Disk Union of Tokyo already has it up for sale.

This is a CD-only (digipack) release in Japan. Art is nearly identical to the US release.
