"The story of Iris is very much rooted in our prairie
surroundings and deals with the struggles of addiction, sickness and religion. A father finds himself
unable to connect with and care for his young daughter, Iris, who has fallen seriously ill. Spiralling deeper
and deeper into his vices, and feeling rejected by Iris’ new found and unwavering faith, he gets into his
car and decides to leave her behind. Somewhere along the icy road, he loses control of his vehicle and
perishes. His purgatory is to watch helplessly as Iris slowly succumbs to her illness without him."
Iris will feature the art of Travis Smith (Katatonia, Opeth, Anathema). The cover artwork brilliantly depicts
Iris final moments as she kneels before the winter beset church and embraces her fate.
Adjust the light. Fall into Iris. Follow the Canadian juggernaut into a new level of doom and despair.
