Orchestrated Lysergic Blues for the end of everything.
And boy, do they hit back hard. Supposedly, the album itself was actually finished in late 2012, but the band (who had long since operated independently) put their self-proclaimed magnum opus on the backburner while they shopped out the finished product to record labels, too proud of their work to banish it to the underground. Even after signing with Monotreme Records, the album’s release date continued to be pushed back, eventually landing on a late April/early May 2014 release (depending on what part of the word you live).
Trophy Scars released the EP, Darkness, Oh Hell, in October 2010. The album is a further throwback to the blues and psychedelic rock music of the late 1960s while retaining a sinister edge Trophy Scars released the follow-up to Darkness, Oh Hell, another EP, titled Never Born, Never Dead on July 19, 2011. The band announced they would be releasing their forthcoming full length, Holy Vacants, April 8, 2014 via Monotreme Records. The LP is a linear concept involving a romantic couple who have discovered The Fountain of Youth in the blood cells of angels

Extant is the opening track to Trophy Scars' 2014 concept album Holy Vacants. The album tells the story of two lovers, who discovered the secret recipe of Qeres, an Egyptian perfume capable of killing angels and Nephilims (angel-human cross-breed). They use this knowledge to kill angelic creatures and drink their blood, which rejuvenates them, allowing them to outlive any human. Jerry Jones, Trophy Scars' leader, claims that while the supernatural elements of the story are fictional, the relationship between the two characters is heavily based on his own experiences. With Extant, we witness our protagonists in the act of consuming an angel they just killed. The gruesome act appears normal to them. After the act, they are about to begin their lives anew in a different place, yet with heavy signs of hesitation, hinting at the cold, emotionless nature of their relationship.
Unbeknownst to the loyal Trophy Scars fan base, that would prove to be one hell of a wait. Even after signing with Monotreme Records, the albums release date continued to be pushed back, eventually landing on a late April/early May 2014 release (depending on what part of the word you live).
