    Kingdom Hearts III releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019 in Japan, and January 29, 2019 to the rest of the world. You can now watch the latest Frozen trailer, Square Enix E3 Showcase trailer, and Pirates of the Carribean trailer!

  3. Analysis: Kingdom Hearts III E3 2018 Pirates of the Carribean Trailer

    A brand new Kingdom Hearts III trailer debuted at Sony’s E3 Conference last night, and much like the others it was stuffed to the brim with brand new information! Let’s take a look.

    Our first shot from the trailer is the same as the other recent E3 ones with the quote: “The light is gathering together hearts driven by one oath, one purpose.” It previously seemed like Kingdom Hearts III was going to be using the “Don’t assume your dreams are just fantasy” quote, but the appearance of this seems to indicate these are just for the trailers.



    Posted Image

    The first true bit of footage shows Sora, Donald and Goofy rendered in a much more realistic fashion and all sporting brand new looks. Sora looks very much like Captain Jack with a conventional pirate outfit, whilst Donald and Goofy wear shiphand uniforms complete with bandanas.



    Posted Image

    All three are extremely detailed, with Sora’s outfit in particular featuring lots of little touches like a crown emblem stitched into his hat and a cute gold tooth. He’s also sporting bare hands, which is extremely rare for him! Donald and Goofy both have realistic ruffles and fur, as well as realistic eyes which stands out quite nicely. It’s clear the development team is going for less of a stark contrast between character designs like it was in Kingdom Hearts II.



    Posted Image

    Another cute detail comes from Sora singing “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life For Me)” which was featured in both the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and film series. Speaking of music, the song we hear in the background is a brand new piece produced by Takeharu Ishimoto, which he later tweeted about. The track sounds very in line with both Kingdom Hearts and Pirates!

    The next scene in the trailer introduces us to the Pirates of the Caribbean cast, as well as confirming that the game will take place during the third movie, At World's End. All of the character models in the Pirate universe look absolutely amazing, especially considering they’re all live action. Tetsuya Nomura commented on this in an interview saying that they purposefully wanted to test the power of the new generation and try doing a live action movie. Mission accomplished!



    Posted Image

    We finally get to see some gameplay from the Pirates world and it seems to incorporate a lot of ship combat, similarly to a game like Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. The HUD has changed to represent the ship being controlled, with a meter showing the ships’ health and speed taking over Sora. We also get to see that situation commands will still be present when using the ship, as evidenced by the appearance of “Tidal Wave” and “Raging Cannons”, which look like upgrading versions of the regular commands, Water Wave and Cannons.



    Posted Image

    Another interesting aspect shown from this trailer is the enemy health bars. Both the boss and the ships that Sora fights against are shown with a huge amount of health, which implies that we’ll be playing in the Pirates world a bit later in the game.

    We now see Sora boarding the ship using Flowmotion, which is unclear if the player gets a choice to get it started. This is where we get our first look at the Pirates of the Caribbean Keyblade, which is designed after a ship wheel and with a skull keychain as well as emitting aztec coins when hitting enemies. The detail in Sora's Keyblade is best seen in his character render.



    Posted Image

    We then see Sora using it’s first Keyblade transformation, High Wind. We know that this Keyblade is a power form as Sora’s bandana changes colour from blue to red when using it. This transformation seems to rely on area of effect attacks and crowd control, which is especially evident when it transforms further into the Storm Flag. The power form motif is even more obvious here with the red flag. Storm Flag looks similar to High Wind, but with a bigger focus on air attacks, with Sora’s dive attack reminding me of the Jump reaction command when fighting Xaldin in Kingdom Hearts II.



    Posted Image

    Sora is then showing his ability to run up walls before attacking a Heartless that looks extremely reminiscent of the Powerwild Heartless found in Deep Jungle. The white sheen that appears on walls that can be run up still appears here. We then dive in (sorry) to some underwater gameplay for the first time. We see Sora spinning his Keyblade in the water to move and we also get to see some combat, which looks like it’ll utilise combos underwater, although whether or not they’re the same as the ones on solid ground isn’t very clear. We also get to see some new jellyfish Heartless, although with the return of the Powerwild Heartless they could be from Atlantica in the first game.



    Posted Image

    The next clip shows Sora swimming up, before a sneaky trailer cut puts him in the middle of a battle. We can tell a cut is used here as when Sora emerges from the water his Health bar changes and he loses Donald and Goofy. This battle appears to also have the goal of protecting the Black Pearl, which is now shown with a health bar of its own. Sora uses his Shotlock Flowchain to start riding a Heartless, which he then uses to get close to the boss (which also has a lot of health bars). The mix of aerial, water and land combat seems to be the theme for the Pirates world. Sora then attacks the boss when attached to him, using barrier in between attacks to protect himself. The appearance of barrier, which is typically Aqua’s protection method, might imply that Sora has encountered her, or simply learnt her technique. The gameplay section ends with Sora using flowmotion to ride on a rainbow road that has been created by the boss Heartless.



    Posted Image

    As has been the case with previous Kingdom Hearts III trailers, after the gameplay we get to see a good look at the story towards the end of the trailer. The first scene features Luxord, now a vessel for Xehanort, talking to Sora, Donald, Goofy and Jack Sparrow aboard the Black Pearl. Jack’s mention of the Pirate code is a direct reference to the second game, where he said the exact same thing about Luxord, which is a nice little callback. Luxord specifically mentions a black box, which Jack seems confused about, which tells us that it’s not just Maleficent and Pete looking for Back Cover’s Black Box. Is Luxord looking for it for his own gain or does Xehanort truly want it? We previously thought it was just Maleficent looking for the item, but it could have even bigger implications if Luxord is to be believed.



    Posted Image

    The next scene shows Sora, Donald and Goofy about to be attacked by the three Titans atop Mount Olympus. The fact that Sora is still in his Kingdom Hearts II outfit implies this is near the end of the visit to the world, and that this could be leading to the end boss battle. Hercules shows up just in time to join the party and help fight the Titans. We also hear Hades’ voice for the first time in English and he is indeed still voiced by James Woods.

    The next scene shows a Vic the Visitor UFO kidnapping the three Aliens in the Toy Box world, whilst Sora, Buzz and Woody cry out for them to stop. This could be leading to a boss battle of sorts, but it could also be an indication to the ‘new seven hearts’ (more on that later). Elsa is seen building her ice castle and the Rapunzel is seen dancing around in Corona’s plaza after getting her hair done in two quick scenes. Curiously we still don’t hear Rapunzel speak, which could be because the English voice work isn’t quite done yet, as she does speak in the Japanese trailer.



    Posted Image

    Vanitas appears in the world of Monsters, Inc and we get to hear his voice performance by Haley Joel Osment for the first time. He sounds just like he did in Birth By Sleep, which is definitely a good thing. He talks about how “the Unversed collected enough screams and sadness from those children”, which could mean that during the events of the first Monsters, Inc film, the Unversed were collecting the negative emotions that the Monster’s were producing which would be a nice way of connecting the first film to the Kingdom Hearts universe. Mike then reacts accordingly, with Carlos Alazraqui’s voice performance being heard for the first time.

    We then see Larxene again who drops one of the bigger story bombshells of the trailer. Sora accuses Larxene of following Elsa who claims “Maybe she’s one of the seven pure lights we need. The new seven hearts.”. Dream Drop Distance told us that if the seven lights can’t be gathered then the seven princesses will be gathered in their place. This shows that there are now seven new hearts, and they’re not linked to being a princess or not, just a pure-hearted individual. This could be why the green Aliens from Toy Story were abducted before, and it could be why the Organisation is after characters like Elsa and Rapunzel. This is exciting for a few reasons, but the idea of each world actually taking damage like they did in the first game certainly fits the idea of this story being dark. With the removal of Aqua as one of the seven hearts of light, it would make sense for the Organisation to be chasing the seven pure lights instead to fulfill the prophecy.

    Ansem and Xehanort and then seen outside Twilight Town’s mansion, telling Sora to “set your heart free”, providing him with what looks like a dark portal. Is this the way that Roxas returns, through Sora unlocking the dark? We don’t get enough detail, but with Sora’s commitment to bringing Roxas back being a central theme for Kingdom Hearts III, we might just see him do it. Xigbar (with his hair going silver now) is then seen telling Sora that his reward “might be right around the corner”. Since Sora is clearly still in Olympus, he could be referring to the power-up he seemingly receives after getting his strength back, but he’s likely hinting at something much darker.

    One of the highlights of the trailer is getting to see our first look at Lea and Kairi and both of them look absolutely incredible in HD! Lea is still wearing his Organisation coat, but that’s hopefully something that’ll change later in the game. Kairi is shown in her brand new outfit that was seen previously through a Unchained X datamine, but she’s also shown here with a much shorter haircut, reminiscent of her original Kingdom Hearts look. Where in the world they are is a complete mystery, but it can be presumed they’re training still or have just finished. Nomura has also said that where they are is a location we can’t visit in the game, so it’s probably not important. Humorously, Kairi also refers to Lea as Axel again which doesn’t seem to bother him as much anymore, which might mean he’s just got used to the name. It’s a cute reference to Dream Drop Distance, even if it probably doesn’t mean much.

    The trailer ends on one more bombshell by having Riku sat on Destiny Island talking to Riku Replica from Chain of Memories. Although he was presumed dead after the end of Chain of Memories, he’s seen here perfectly alive and well sitting on the beach. This means that Riku was almost definitely referring to him when he said, “In case the other me needs it” after leaving his broken Way to the Dawn Keyblade in the Realm of Darkness. How he’s come back to life is very uncertain, but it does make a good case for Roxas’ return too. Riku Replica is made up of data yet is clearly back here, and in a previous trailer Roxas’ data was discussed and said that it needed to be collected. This could be a big hint to how Roxas is (hopefully) brought back.



    Posted Image

    Another interesting detail from the trailer is that the Japanese version is labelled as "vol. 3" which is almost presenting them in a story like fashion. The Japanese trailer also shows Marluxia, and this time his eye's are yellow which indicates that he's been turned into a Xehanort Vessel too. Why this wasn't included in the first trailer is unknown, but it really shows the extent of Xehanort's plan.

    Overall this was a pretty great trailer that told us a lot of new information about Kingdom Hearts III, especially in regards to the story. Watch the newest trailer here and catch with our coverage of the E3 2018 here.

    Did you see anything that I missed? Let us know in the comments below!

  4. Nomura confirms a recap video is going to be both released this month and in Kingdom Hearts III

    During Nomura's interview at E3 2018 with GNN.com, a recap video for the previous Kingdom Hearts saga chapters has been confirmed to be both released this month and in game. You can check below the interview extract thankfully translated by @Protoplasm_png.

    Q: For players who haven't played the previous games, will it be difficult to understand the plot?

    Nomura: We already made a recap video for players who have not played the game, in order to allow them to know the general plot before playing the game. The Japanese voice recording has been finished and it's going to be released this month. Not only the video will be released on the official website, but it will be included in the game as well. Because there are many games and plot to cover, despite it's going to be a recap video, it might last for several hours.

    Q: Are there any possibilities for a chinese version/localization?

    Nomura: We are still actively discussing about the possibility of a chinese localization.



    Nomura also confirmed in a Famitsu interview that the video will also feature Chirity's narration (thanks to @keytotruth for the translations):

    Nomura: Well, there are a lot of characters and relationships. If we stopped explaining everything in the game, the story wouldn't move forward. So, we're making preparations in our official website for people who want to catch up with the lore. We're condensing all of the story into 5 "episodes" that will have Chirithy narrating the events, also to make it easier to understand. We will make it public shortly after E3 is done. After watching these movies, I hope you get the time to play the HD ReMIXes.



    What do you think about an official recap video to be released for the first time? Are you going to watch it? Don't forget that Kingdom Hearts III releases on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019 in Japan, and January 29, 2019 to the rest of the world. You can now watch the latest Frozen trailer, Square Enix E3 Showcase trailer, and Pirates of the Carribean trailer!

  5. Tetsuya Nomura is putting equal efforts in both Kingdom Hearts III and FFVII Remake

    Tetsuya Nomura, the game director of the Kingdom Hearts saga, recently confirmed, during an interview at the E3 with The Verge that he and the whole team are putting "equal efforts" into both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III, as both projects are being developed in parallel.

    “We are developing [Final Fantasy VII] in parallel, and it’s not just in the early concept stages, we are actually in development"


    He precises:

    "So right now, it’s like I’ve been putting in 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts, 100 percent into Final Fantasy VII, 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts... just going back and forth, it’s just like [working on] two titles is just going to be one [after Kingdom Hearts III’s launch]. That’s pretty much how I see it"


    Concerning the release date issue that recently came out, according to Nomura the game wasn't delayed because it needed more time:

    “We were told by many people, including hardware manufacturers, sales teams, marketing teams, that it just wasn’t good timing in the year," - and when Square Enix pondered the “very tail end” of 2018, the holiday season became another possible problem - “For Kingdom Hearts III, the Western offices requested to release the game as simultaneously as possible between Japan and America, so we no longer were able to just think about Japanese issues and retail situations,”


    The company then had to factor possibilities of retailers in specific regions closing early or offering limited sales hours:

    “When we looked toward that, we were told that the best timing after all of that would be the tail end of January,” Nomura says. “We of course considered maybe speeding up the development to release earlier than we were told that it wasn’t good, but the development team said, no, we can’t do that. We could delay it, but we can’t make it any sooner. If we are to also potentially delay the release date, then we could have that extra time to work on the game a little more. It kind of just all worked together for us to decide on this date.”


    Last but not least, he says that he owes a lot to his fans, which keeps him motivated to keep on going creating:

    “I actually don’t like human relationships more than just work, so I just want to focus on work and creating things, if I don’t have to deal with human relationships. It’s actually a little bit easier for me to do than not working.” - also - “I do need fans to play my games, to be able to create it, and so fans are definitely a factor to motivate me to keep on going.”


    We want to remember you that Kingdom Hearts III is going to be released in January 25th 2019 in Japan and Worldwide in January 29th 2019. Be sure to keep following our E3 2018 coverage on our site and on all our social medias (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr)!

  6. Kingdom Hearts III might release with only Japanese and English dubs according to IGN France

    A recent tweet from IGNFrance has claimed that Kingdom Hearts III might only contain English and Japanese dubs at launch.

    IGN France tweeted the information and later made an article about it.

    "On @JVTVofficial Florent Moreau, CEO of @SquareEnixFR confirms the absence of VF voice for Kingdom Hearts 3. There will be VOST English / Japanese only."


    The information comes from Florent Moreau, CEO of Square Enix France but isn't confirmed yet.

    Previously Memo Aponte Mille, the voice actor for Hiro Hamada in the Spanish dub of Big Hero 6, had recently published a video on his Instagram teasing his involvement in dubbing a role for an upcoming new game along with co-star Alan Prieto, who voiced Baymax. It can't be yet confirmed that this is Kingdom Hearts III.

    A petition exists that hopes to add more language options to Kingdom Hearts III which we've previously reported on and participated in.

    Are you disappointed at the potential lack of language options in Kingdom Hearts III? Let us know in the comments below!

    Kingdom Hearts III releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019 in Japan, and January 29, 2019 to the rest of the world. You can now watch the latest Frozen trailer, Square Enix E3 Showcase trailer, and Pirates of the Carribean trailer!

  7. Nomura says Kingdom Hearts doesn't need as much from Final Fantasy characters as it did before

    An interview between Tetsuya Nomura and USGamer has provided an update as to why we haven't seen any Final Fantasy characters in Kingdom Hearts III.

    The interviewer asked Tetsuya Nomura what he had to say about the lack of Final Fantasy characters in the recent trailers for Kingdom Hearts III.

    "I can't disclose too much about the Final Fantasy characters or whether or not they'll be in Kingdom Hearts 3, because I can only speak to what's been shown. But the reason you haven't been shown any Final Fantasy characters is that there are so many original characters that need to resolve their own problems and issues. And because their issues and problems are very difficult, there just hasn't been that much space to fit Final Fantasy characters so far.


    This seems to imply that the final chapter of the Xehanort saga will indeed be focusing on the original Kingdom Hearts characters, rather than the supporting ones. Nomura also talked about the place of Final Fantasy characters in the series.

    "When you look back on the first Kingdom Hearts, Sora was still a new character, so we kind of had the Final Fantasy characters as supporting characters. But now that it's been 15 years, the original characters are more polished than they were before, so I don't think they need the Final Fantasy characters help as much as they did before.

    Also, when we first released Kingdom Hearts, there weren't that many other titles that brought together the Final Fantasy characters. I actually think that Kingdom Hearts may have been the first to do that. But nowadays, there are an abundance of titles that do that, so I don't see the value of having that kind of feature in the game anymore. But that doesn't mean that I'm saying that there won't be any Final Fantasy characters. Please look forward to future information."


    Similar information was revealed in an interview between Nomura and GameInformer earlier this week which we also covered.

    What do you think about Kingdom Hearts III having less Final Fantasy characters? Let us know in the comments below.

    Kingdom Hearts III releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019 in Japan, and January 29, 2019 to the rest of the world. You can now watch the latest Frozen trailer, Square Enix E3 Showcase trailer, and Pirates of the Carribean trailer!

  8. Frozen confirmed as a world for Kingdom Hearts III

    Kingdom Hearts III made a surprise appearance at Microsoft's E3 press conference, where it debuted a brand new trailer.

    The trailer revealed to us that the Kingdom of Arendelle, featured in the hit Disney film Frozen, will be a playable world in Kingdom Hearts III. The trailer showed a lot of new gameplay from the world, as well as new cutscenes and story content from others.

    The trailer shown during the conference has been uploaded to YouTube for everyone to see! You can watch it below.






    This is the second Kingdom Hearts III trailer to have debuted in the last 24 hours, with another one being shown during the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra. With Square Enix's conference still to come, can we expect to see more of the game?

    What else do you think will be shown during E3? Let us know in the comments below! Follow us at our coverage here, Facebook,Tumblr, and Twitter!

  10. Kaoru Wada hints to two new arranged songs for upcoming Kingdom Hearts Orchestra

    Kaoru Wada, the composer who worked for both "Hikari - Orchestra" and "Passion - Orchestra" and also for the previous Kingdom Hearts Orchestra concerts arrangements, teased through his Facebook account that two new songs will be revealed during the performance in Los Angeles, which is also going to be the premiere of the entire tour.

    Following, the Facebook post which Mr. Wada wrote:

    [ Second Round KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World Tour- ]

    19 of the concerts will take place in 8 countries such as USA, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Italy, Korea, and Mexico. Unfortunately there’s no concert in Japan. (ToT)

    Since Los Angeles will be the premiere of the tour, I will be present during the rehearsal and concert with composer Yoko Shimomura as well as others. I’ve steadily prepared for two newly arranged songs for this tour. (^ o ^) …

    I can’t spend much time in LA but I’d like to experience plenty of the Disney atmosphere.

    ♫ KINGDOM HEARTS fans around the world, please wait a bit more~ (^ o ^) /

Having presented the entirety of the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] saga, Everglow feels comfortable in postponing this section of the project until the game receives a large amount of additional main story content.

  18. Overview of Everglow's new Kingdom Hearts Timeline video series

    As a long-standing creator of guides and creative videos on the Kingdom Hearts series, Everglow has provided the Kingdom Hearts community with countless hours of enjoyable content. His latest and most ambitious video series, Kingdom Hearts Timeline, serves as a comprehensive look into the entire series’ chronology, from the elaborate schemes of Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, to the most recent voyage that we see Sora and pals embark on in the epilogue of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-.

    Kingdom Hearts Timeline sets itself apart from similar projects by featuring each and every story event in absolute chronological order, instead of using flashbacks or revealing information in the order it was originally presented. As an example, during Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, the birth of Vanitas will be shown before the Mark of Mastery exam, despite the fact that this flashback is normally seen during the later hours of Ventus' story. This strict adherence to the series' chronology is emphasized by the intricate timeline that is displayed at the beginning of each episode.

    Posted Image

    Similar to another of Everglow’s projects, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix: HD Chronicles, the editing in Kingdom Hearts Timeline is both detailed and professional, resulting in perhaps the most visually and audibly appealing representation of the series to date. This detailed editing has already delighted many fans, and it will undoubtedly get even better as the series progresses.

    Most recently as of the writing of this article, Everglow has taken a more creative approach to his Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep-related content than ever before. In this instance, since Eraqus' conversation with Aqua about the Land of Departure's secret was only heard through dialogue in the game's final episode, no visual footage of this moment actually exists. However, a special cutscene, which Everglow calls "Case of Aqua", was created completely from scratch to showcase this moment, and will soon be featured in Kingdom Hearts Timeline. You can view this new cutscene below:


    Everglow intends for Kingdom Hearts Timeline to be fully available before the release of Kingdom Hearts III. From his description of the series, he states the following:

    I did want to deliver this before the release of KINGDOM HEARTS 3, so we could have the perfect road to the final chapter of the Xehanort saga at our disposal and relive, together, all of the chapters in a definitive and never-seen-before way.


    We hope that you continue to enjoy Kingdom Hearts Timeline as we steadily get closer to the release of Kingdom Hearts III! For continued updates on the series, be sure to follow Everglow's Twitter account. With the staggering amount of work he is putting into the project, you won't want to miss a thing!

  19. Review: Project Destati shines bright through DARKNESS

    Impassioned by both music and video games, Kristin Naigus, David Russell, and Sebastian Wolff, the musicians behind Project Destati have aimed to reawaken the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack and celebrate its ambition and complexity. With a full orchestra and their own arrangements, they began to captivate the community with their beautiful and sometimes ingenious compositions. Their latest album, DARKNESS, continues to hit the mark, mastering the elements that made the songs we know and love and adding a flare of their own.

    The formula was simple: orchestral reimaginings of a nostalgia-infused soundtrack paired with an unforgettable melody, blending together to reorchestrate beloved songs.

    Both LIGHT and their debut album AWAKENING played with this equation. Melodies from Dearly Beloved, Roxas, and Hikari found themselves tucked into character, world, and battle themes. There wasn’t a song you couldn’t find these themes in and more hidden within. It became very akin to their musical stylings and showcased their devotion to the source material and displayed a love and understanding for the thematics that composer Yoko Shimomura and company built while composing the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack.

    DARKNESS is no exception to this.


    Posted Image



    The album opens with an overture built around familiar tracks and the new themes you will find throughout DARKNESS, bringing it all together to set the stage for the new 30-track set list. Jam-packed with highlights from Kingdom Hearts II, Birth by Sleep, 358/2 Days, Union χ[Cross], and more, there is a new maturity in the music that shows a penchant for originality that Project Destati has always exhibited in their reorchestrations. Tracks such as Ventus, Future Masters, and Daybreak Town take on lives of their own, drawing in Celtic inspiration and refreshing tempos. Magical Mystery, Home of Dragons, and A Day in Agrabah elevate the world themes with clever homages to their Disney counterparts. Even the return of the piano duet with Utada Hikaru’s Passion is a fervent spectacle that is perhaps the most ethereal of the tracks, displaying the intensity and talent we’ve come to expect.

    The pièce de résistance, Xion, is a near eleven minute epic and what feels like the heart and soul of the entire project. Anyone familiar with Project Destati will have noticed the #XionLives plug they’ve used leading up to DARKNESS. The motif has been hidden throughout this album in a variety of ways, yearning to be found. The highly anticipated track is wrought with emotion, embodying the tragedy of the titular character as it evolves a simple melancholic melody into a haunting symphonic ballad. Much of the arrangement feels intentional. From the dynamic texture imitating the rise and fall of the sea to the inclusion of Roxas, these grabs are both symbolic and weighty given the context of the story the music is trying to tell. Needless to say, this will be a song not easily forgotten.

    If you are a fan of Kingdom Hearts and its music, I implore you give DARKNESS a listen. There is so much more to explore in each song that we’ve only just scratched the surface. The arrangements are smart, colourful, and beautifully orchestrated with attention to themes and melodies that will let you relive every moment the soundtrack provides in new and unimaginable ways.

    If you want to learn more about Project Destati and their projects, check out their website here!

    DARKNESS is available for purchase digitally at bandcamp, iTunes, TIDAL, and Google Play, available to stream on Amazon, Deezer, Kkbox, and Spotify, or pre-order the limited edition CD + digital album here!
