Today, HM is proud to premiere the full album stream of The Restitution’s sophomore album, Into the Dark. The band — a moniker for the solo project of musician Michael Wright — sought out to explore the brokenness of human connection through the music and lyrics of the work; the album spent over four years in the making.

Wright spoke about the album:

“Humans need each other by nature, but we live in a society where we are unwittingly making it easier to live without each other, and thereby harder to live with each other. This is something that has affected me deeply, and is really what this record is about.”

The album was also produced, engineered and mixed by Wright, recorded at It’s a Trap! Recording.

Fans of the work can purchase the piece over at the band’s Bandcamp page.

Droning On

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
