You may recognize the name Jeff Caxide as a guilty party in one of the most influential bands of the early 2000s, Isis. With that stellar and much revered project behind him, Caxide has entered into a new venture with Crone and a new album Endless Midnight due on July 19th via Translation Loss. The new LP explores some of the ambient textures that Isis touched upon, yet goes further down the rabbit hole.

Dont think Jeff can escape his past that easily though. His former Isis cohorts Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer lend guest appearances on the record along with John LaMacchia (Candiria) while Aaron Turner joins Mamiffer bandmate Faith Coloccia on artwork detail. Check out the Endless Midnight art and a stream of "The Silver Hammer", the third track from the James Plotkin produced LP, below.

Meanwhile, Isis has unleashed the floodgate on older live material, releasing five live LPs via their website. Tracklistings and album details are also below...
