From the damp shadows of the Midwest emerge the Assembly Line Gods, four musicians devoted to awakening something in their listener... the animal within, perhaps. Man has spent centuries finding ways to hide what he really is. The Assembly Line Gods have observed them all, studied them and seen past them. Beginning in 2008 guitarist E.B. Cox, bassist Josh Kroeger, singer David Samples and drummer Carson Underwood began writing songs reflecting those observations. While their deft playing ability and lyricism appeal to one's intellect, it is that primal spirit the notes are really reaching for.
