“I wrote Pledge of our Generation in memory of the countless people that have given their lives while fighting for freedom and democracy back in Venezuela, where I was born,” states front-man Eduardo Gil. ”All these people (most of them very young), have been killed by the very same establishment that should be protecting them. Instead, the police and military are being misused by the corrupt legacy of Chavez, currently led by President Nicolas Maduro. The Venezuelan people need the world to know, that wherever you are, you can raise your voice and make a difference. United through peaceful protest, artistic freedom, and free speech, we can make a stand against this tyrant regime. We can honor the struggle of those who are still on the streets of Venezuela, fighting for our country’s freedom.”
The album’s track listing is as follows: ‘Agents of Chaos’, ‘Alone’, ’Blowing Fire’, ‘Not from Here’, ‘Blurry Paintings’, ‘Pledge of Our Generation’, ’Nothing but Us’, ‘Things Change’, ‘Epsilon’, and ‘Gloom’.
