Q: Envious Despair is said to be one of the hardest bands in SA alongside Bile of Man, Bleeding Spawn etc, now, will there be an album soon?
A: To be mentioned along side Bile of man and Bleeding Spawn is a HUGE compliment for us so thanks for that as per your question we would love to rerecord AS THE WORLD DIES however we don't have the finances or resources to do it so our main focus now is on gigging as much as possible catch us in September Thank you for your interest (BRUTAL Darth Vader VOICE)
