Fiction 8

  • At one point the three current members of Fiction 8 lived in three cities that were nowhere near each other – Denver, Seattle and Austin – but thanks to technology the distance didn’t hinder their collaboration. Their sixth studio album, Dark Star Disarray is, as they say, “in the can” and awaiting release later in 2015.
