    We could not afford to manufacture Digipak CDs this time round, which is a huge shame, but we love to sell merchandise, so we thought this time we will make it more 'bespoke' and more interesting. We have created some of our own cassette tapes of the album, each side contains the full album. The cassette comes in a clear plastic case, printed card with album cover, liner notes and lyrics and we will also sign each copy on the inside of the card with a personal message from both members of the band.

    These are made at our own place so it is not 'professionally' manufactured, but they are good still and they aren't expensive either. It is a rarity and a personal item from the band and we will not make many of these at all. The first batch will be of 8 cassettes only. If we sell out, we may make a few more but if only demand is there.

    Sold Out



'Drowning the Pacific' is the seventh album by Echo Tail, which signals a move away from their instrumental roots and incorporates a vocal performance on every track. The album's theme focuses on people who deal with the problems of trust and revealing secrets to the people he/she are close with. The lyrics of the album aim to portray this concept.

This album was a particular challenge for the band since it is a complete transition from instrumental to a complete vocal performance, but through all the struggles and hard work, we are immensely proud of how this album has turned out, and hope you can relate to the story and emotion put in throughout this album as you listen to it.

We would love everyone to share this album with anyone they know who might like these tracks and download it too, we would be immensely grateful.

Thank you for the support so far, we treasure our listeners dearly.

Track Name: Pacific
The salt of the ocean
chills my wounds of fear
isolation is open water
my bones freeze like stone

Losing my soul in too deep
Searching for peace in the blue
Will I reach the shore
or be swallowed in the Pacific gore?
Track Name: Ends to a Mean
When everything is getting clear
Time starts pushing faster for us
I could stop all the anxiety
but where would our true feelings go?

Its an ends to a mean
All the hours spent here will fade
Confiding our secrets in the rain
They disintegrate without a trace
Track Name: Aquaplanes
I am a citizen of shame
Where all that's left of me is the last of my empathy
Retreating to the ends of my morality
Searching for the start of something in this sea

Throw the water
Place the anchor in my hands

Take my hands, guide me through the haze
It is the last time I will follow you again

So spray the remains of the past
So it all fades in the aquaplane
Track Name: Autumn Aviation
There are eyes around me
Piercing the skin
The coldness swirls beneath my feet
I'll aviate myself to sea

I am breathing in the salt
Submerging from the depths of the fall

The seasons change with lack of love
The water engulfs me in despair
The coldness swirls around my head
I'll sink to the bottom

I am breathing in the salt
Submerging from the depths of the fall
Track Name: Season of Violence
Can you feel the blood in the air?
The metallic smell enters my lungs
It is time, throw away your fears
Bring an end to this suffering

Burn down the morals that bind us
Destroy the cities that made them
We are blessed by our sons and daughters
To do what is right at any cost

When its time to search and rebuild our regrets
Look back at what we have done
I would not have it any other way
Track Name: A Shadow Among Us
You hang on the back of my misery
Like a leech sucking life out of me
Leaving a mark of desire and frustration
A feeling so dense it always stalks

Standing on the edge of my own shadow
It's time to fall into the eclipse
Blame me for all the things that went wrong
You are responsible too

I want to burn you away
so that you don't exist anymore
you are the only thing standing
in the way of moving on
Track Name: Midori
Green eyes seduce me
Your ashen hair tangles me into your maze
The sound of your teeth makes my eyes tingle
It turns me away from the abyss

When it is time to wander into your mind
Make sure the key is in your safe place

The length of your love is endless
It complicates me in your jungle
I never want to leave your arms
While you stare into my empty chest
Track Name: In The Absence of Faith
Why should I accept the things that you do
If you could throw me back into the lake
I won't follow anymore, I make my own choices
I learn more from mistakes than believing you

Time to move on from the past
Ignite the things that pulled me back

I am coming of age in these troubled times
Start a new life and leave this place behind
