Exploring Echo Us' deep & ethereal past uncovers an Inland Empire...
Inland Empire, Echo Us' seventh full-length studio album might be seen as an epilogue to the original Echo Us trilogy (2009-2014). The music compiles almost everything that didn't fit onto the Echo Us trilogy - The Tide Decides (2009), Tomorrow Will Tell The Story (2012), and II:XII, A Priori Memoriae (2014).
Inland Empire was completed at the same time as A Priori Memoriae, but is a closer cousin to the award-winning Tomorrow Will Tell The Story - deep, ambient, and consciousness-shifting. As years passed and other releases came, the album was kept as an archival work except for one track (It’s Time For Winter) which saw limited release as a single in fall 2016.
Unlike many archival works Inland Empire will be very new to Echo Us fans, and appears in 2023 exactly how it sounded in 2013 - down to the use of the original mix and masters.
