Hey all, we’re stoked to give you the official news regarding the EP! Set to drop this summer, this demonic precursor to the full-length will be titled ‘In The Kingdom Of Gods’ and will contain 4 new tunes, “Grailblazer”, “The Whore”, “Gods And Alcoholics” and “Sympathy For The Insects”…here’s the sick cover art!!!
Soon we’ll be heading to 40West studio in Montreal to track the drums, and we’re tentatively due in June at Silo studios in Hamilton to track and mix the rest with Julius “Juice” Butty (Protest The Hero, Alexisonfire). We have 9 new tunes for the full-length, which may expand to 10 or 11 depending on how and when we wrap up the writing process, and we hope to have the new full-length out in the first half of 2010.
And FINALLY behold our badass new Myspace layout!!! We’re now streaming our entire debut album “The Great Northern Scenekill” for y’all to check out, and we’ll post the new tunes as well as some summer concert daters in the coming weeks.

FINALLY the news everyone's been waiting for...We're heading up to Montreal at the end of April to track the drums for 4 new tracks...Bart (Quo Vadis, Plasmarifle) will be handling the recording of the drums at 40West Studio...then in June, we're off to Silo studios to once again work with our good friend and producer extraordinaire Julius Butty (Alexisonfire, Protest The Hero) to finish tracking, mixing and producing the EP.
As I said, the EP will contain 4 tunes, 'The Whore', 'Sympathy For The Insects', 'Grailblazer', and 'Gods and Alcoholics'...the 4 tunes are fucking sonic sledgehammers, the best, heaviest and most challenging stuff we've ever done and we can't wait for you all to hear em!
As well, we're in the process of redesigning our myspace and website, so bear with us while we renovate the shit outta this place!

Matt's update made Blabbermouth.net, thought I'd just post it here incase anybody wanted to check it out and leave their comments.
Happy 2008 To All!!
Just wanted to give you guys an update on what's going on in the Senate camp...Pat returned from a 2 month run with Despised Icon filling in for Alex on the drums, and we managed to squeeze in a show with Beneath The Massacre a couple days afterwards. The main business however is that we've been writing and demo-ing tunes for our next record! We're nearly half a dozen tunes in, and we have lots more ideas that just need to be arranged and recorded and I would say that things are progressing very well.
As far as the tunes go they are all quite different from each other, and quite different from the Scenekill record. Some are longer and more technical, a couple are shorter and more aggressive and a couple ideas are coming out very melodic, so it looks like its gonna be a much more diverse and interesting outing this time.
Some of the new titles are:
Everyone's a Christian On Their Deathbed Sympathy For The Insects The Whore Vices Speak Through Me
We're aiming to do some in studio preproduction in late March/Early April so you'll get a chance to hear some new ideas around then. Anyways take care all and we'll see you soon!
Also a show review of our gig with Beneath The Massacre has appeared in Exclaim! Magazine, it's been added to the media section, You might have noticed the new layout of our website, a special thanks goes to Jm... GrimM... for the artwork. The dude is super talented and anybody looking for some cool album art should throw a message his way!
