"Middle Ages" is the culmination of a multiyear remote collaboration for long time friends and songwriters Kevin Heckeler and Scott Watts. Originally (and until recently) making music under a different project name, Kevin and Scott decided on a new band name for this latest album (something that better reflects the curious and contemplative nature of the music).

Their prior alternative rock concept album "Missing Pieces" was favorably received. After a break they reconvened to making music in 2020 like so many others at the time. Initially it was just random song ideas but eventually Scott found common themes and started molding them into a cohesive narrative ('Middle Age'). Weekly songwriting sessions for a couple years allowed Scott to be heavily involved in the note by note composition of the songs, bringing fresh and unique ideas to life that otherwise may never have been achievable without advancements in technology, and specifically remote collaboration.

Lyric videos have been uploaded to Youtube for free streaming.
