“It’s a kind of a return to our roots - our psychedelic origin,” states Jeff. A conceptual album, TO THE END OF THE SEA, is heavy on hooks, vocal harmonies and ringing guitars. Oh, and cellos, courtesy of Phil Hirschi.
Created specifically for release on vinyl, the record is an album length medley of 18 songs, divided into two parts…sides 1 and 2.

Guest vocalist and daughter of cellist Phil, Elise Hirschi, sings the album title song, "To the End of the Sea," in Spanish: "Al Fin de la Mar." "When I heard her sing I knew we had to get her on this record," says Jeff.
As mentioned in a previous post, the PHANTOM LAKE album is still in the works but will now probably be released in early 2017. “I just got a little side-tracked with this (TO THE END OF THE SEA) record and it became the priority," Kelly said. "It’s very exciting. I think people are really going to dig this a lot!”
