REIGN SUPREME have premiered a lyric video for “The Hopelessly Devoted”, which will appear on their upcoming EP ‘Sky Burial’ (in stores March 19th through Mediaskare Records). You can view the video at this location http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDE0AUt_dJY. The 7-track EP, which was produced by Will Putney (Stray From The Path, Hundredth), features guest appearances by Scott Wade of Comeback Kid, Chris Colohan of Cursed/Burning Love, and Mike Moynihan/Steve Muscemi of Hollow Earth.
“Sky Burial comes from the Tibetan tradition of bringing the dead to a mountain, or other place where vultures gather. The vultures and other animals consume the corpse, and hence, it becomes a vessel to feed and care for these creatures,” explained vocalist Jay Pepito on the title for the EP “It’s a cool idea, wherein your empty shell of a person becomes of some utility to some other thing, and I just found the idea of that fascinating; it makes more sense to me than embalming the dead in an attempt to preserve some self-imposed idea of what they were like in life, and then tossing that homemade mannequin into a pine box, and letting it rot. It seems to me to be more pragmatic, to let yourself be the thing that sustains your ecosystem. It reminds us that we are just animals, that we are not special because of our smart cars and Facebook, and that we, in a sense, are simply carrion.”
Sky Burial track listing:
1. It Feels Like A Thousand Years
3. Stuck Pig, Bled Dry
4. The Hopelessly Devoted
5. In Tongues
6. Eighteen And Bulletproof
Conceived Through an Act of Violence

Weekend with our friends in RECON this weekend in Albany and Brooklyn NY! Come hang out!
Piling in the van to hang out at The Machine Shop so Jay can finally finish the fucking vocals for Sky Burial. I’m gonna bring my work laptop and hopefully catch up on some stuff.
Also, been writing riffs for my new metalcore revival band with Randall. (Think Martyr Ad, 100 Demons, Turmoil, Throwdown, Poison the Well type stuff), so we might jam out on that while we are up there too.
