RIP Christo Buffam

It is with massive grief that we announce the loss of one of our main musical + visual collaborators Christo Buffam. After meeting him in 2008 he joined us for countless live shows and played on 2 records. 2011′s “Verisimilitude” EP and 2013′s “Thought & Language” LP.

In remembrance to Christo Buffam (1982-2014)
