Following the Rapture, Ready EP, the band now a six-piece ensemble, planned on entering the studio for their initial full-length album entitled Departures with Gerrard Smith again at the helm. Tragically, Smith passed away before recordings could commence. During this time, the group went on an indefinite hiatus and Autry focused his energies towards writing and recording as a full-time member of ...Trail of Dead.
In 2013 Autry rekindled the project with many of his past collaborators including original members Jason Reece, Eric Rodgers, and Peter Hale along with new producers Ian Longwell of Santigold and Jamie Miller of ...Trail of Dead and The START.
The group convened at The Sonic Ranch with documentarian Hugo Vargas-Zesati and Ben Cissner to record Departures, an album that focused not just on the loss of his father or his producer/ friend Gerrard Smith but also in tribute to the nomadic life Fulbright began to lead constantly travelling and writing songs on the road while placing his father’s ashes in various parts of the world. The album stands as a tribute to loss whether it be death, love, or one’s own mind.
