Formed in 2010, A Tragedy in Progress is the complete and original line up of Across Five Aprils. The band had reunited for a series of reunion shows that year when they decided to write some new songs under the name of the band’s first record (A Tragedy in Progress). Eventually this led to long time A5A collaborators Indianola Records releasing the 2011 EP “Going Down With The Ship”.

Guitarist Jason Fields recently commented during an AtlSounds interview on what listeners can expect from this full length effort: “I feel like it’s a solid record start to finish. A lot of records have high points and a lot of filler in between. I feel like our record is strong throughout. Across Five Aprils fans will hear things that are indicative of this lineup and our chemistry, but they will hear better crafted songs with a more mature sound. That being said, I believe and hope a new listener would enjoy it just as much”
