This is the calmer's debut CD, and is the crowning achievement of the band thus far. After our first CD as figurehead we now felt we had the freedom to focus much more on musicianship, hence the length of time spent working on it.

There is also a story told within the lyrics and artwork of this album. 'Natural disaster' is primarily about a young man and a very unusual series of events. This central character finds his life unremarkable and is somewhat lonely and morose. He finds little joy in his life, except on his morning subway ride to work where he shares a half hour with a beautiful girl he longs for, but cannot bring himself to approach. With the rest of his life empty, he became fixated on this girl. One night, he is abruptly woken up by his alarm clock at an unusual time. When he groggily looks out his window, all he can see is the sky filled with alarmingly dangerous looking storm clouds and an utterly deserted city underneath. More shocking than these discoveries is the very deep and powerful feeling he has to find the one light in his life regardless of anything else...

The calmer started as a band called figurehead: Fee and Brian had known each other for a year and played music together and wanted to start a band for a while during that time. Sometime in April of 2006, Andrew came to a party at Fee and Brianâs apartment where he played for a bit on Brianâs electric drum set. That was all it took for Fee and Brian to recruit Andrew and start the long awaited band. Jamming and practices commenced immediately. For lack of a place to practice, Fee and Andrew made the hour long drive to Gardnerville at least three times a week to practice in a guesthouse belonging to Brianâs parents. It went like that until august, when Fee, Brian and Andrew all moved into a house together and really started concentrating on the band, which they had decided to call 'figurehead'. between august of '06 and may of '07, they wrote the music for the CD 'creative differences', released 5/19/07, which was also the date of the band's first show at club underground.

They played shows pretty steadily for the next year, and began writing the music for the next album, later to be named ânatural disasterâ. At this point the band decided to incorporate elements of progressive rock music such as longer, less structured songs as well as non-standard time signatures, partially to contrast with the first album which was fairly mainstream. Also, it was decided to have the album tell a story, which was written over the course of many, many long nights at the bar down the street, bully's. Which brings us to the present: natural disaster has been over a year and a half in the making and we hope you enjoy it.
