Today marks one year without Eric. In his honor, we thought it'd be nice to finally share with you something that we've been working on for months. The last complete song Eric wrote was something really special in our eyes, with lyrics written as a hopeful message to his daughter Ella and with music composed as an ambitious orchestral movement at times. It was a song Eric was rightfully extremely proud of, and in the weeks before his passing, we'd finally worked out a full band arrangement that would allow us to perform it live at our next show. In fact, it was the last song we played together mere hours before he passed. With the help of his old friend and fellow musician and producer Stephen Piemonte, we were able to retrieve the master tracks of Eric's demo recording of the song and record and mix our full band arrangement around Eric's vocals and guitar. Ben even got a chance to record drums before he moved.
Long story short, here's Eric's final musical gift to the world (and, more importantly, his daughter) in the form in which we'd hoped to one day share it with you live. We hope you'll find it as comforting as we do.
