Late into the night on Saturday, February 16th, 2013 Calvin Maloney and Patrick Quigley of Analecta, Jeff Stuckel also known as Keyoung, and Aaron James Nicolas of Trouper collaborated on the single, "The Canopy of Violent Noise." The entire song was written and recorded in 6 hours at Charisma House Record Company.


Soil soaked with opium
Nothing is forgiven
Exhausted, yet awakened
With canopies of violent noise
Broken treble
Burnt to embers
Ash made out of the earth
No one can escape it

The lead lined glass fractured across my horizon
Blocking the life -giving sun
The refracted rainbows brought blood-lined sight
A seer of soil and dust I become
A confessor of the breaking of bones
Under a canopy of stopped up ears and crashing cars
I stand a single upright speck
Amidst the voluntary prong.
