Be no sheep, hiding in your own skin. I can tell a stranger dwells within. These walls grow numb for a moments bliss, false truths that only you will miss. While you waste away, I won’t waste away.
I am the shepard leading your lost way. I am the Charon who’s debt you must pay. Black and blue I see right through your weightless words. Use me now, take your bow, cast me with lepers.
When you wake in your cold damp sweat, writhing in all of your regret I know you’ll turn for comforting, to your poison bedside remedy. While you waste away, I won’t waste.
I am the shepard leading your lost way. I am the Charon who’s debt you must pay, black and blue I see right through your weightless words. Use me now, take your bow, cast me with lepers.
I am an imposter, she is all I can offer. You lay claim to rule it all, but I will rise and you will fall.
Afterimage is set to release on August 20, 2013 via Reveille Records. Pre-orders will be up for the vinyl version of the release on the same day.
I can’t tell you how excited I am for this ep.

This past Fall, Boxer (Richmond, VA) teamed up with Eyes Wide (Hollidaysburg, PA) to record a split EP. Boxer enlisted the help of Will Yip (Title Fight, Balance & Composure) for recording while Eyes Wide collaborated with Vince Ratti (Tigers Jaw, The Wonder Years) and the end result is a mind melting mix of melodic hardcore and 90s alternative rock.
This marks the second release from Boxer after debuting their EP Undertow on Reveille Records in 2012 and the first batch of new material from Eyes Wide since 2011. The album ranges from moody angst ridden jams like Boxer’s “Weight” to the gloomy passion of Eyes Wide’s “Gem.” Each band is showcasing three new songs which represents the current direction that both bands are embarking on.
On May 7th, 2013 the split will be released digitally (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon MP3) and on CD via Reveille Records. You can PRE-ORDER the album here.
