After completing the debut Lowly Man EP in February, we received a lot of positive feedback. So we were spurned on to launch straight into a follow-up. Andy had a couple of ideas lined up, and I had a couple of riffs looking for a home too.
Andy read an article on male personality types, categorised by Greek letters. It inspired him to write lyrics about past experiences with these personalities. I was ready to dive back into recording, after learning lots of tricks on the first EP. And I had a few ideas of my own about giving each track its own character.
So, only 11 weeks after the first EP was finished, we had a second EP ready for release. This was also made available on Bandcamp, using a old photograph of Andy, illustrating the subject of the song Alpha Dogs.
