In July 2015 Hanging Garden recorded and filmed the live performance for five songs. The 2-day session, called “Backwoods Sessions”, took place in the woods of Pernaja in a location familiar from one of the band’s earlier music videos.
One of the key songs in this session was the Jeff Buckley cover “Dream Brother”, which was arranged to portray the current sound of Hanging Garden. This was also the band’s last performance with drummer Antti Ruokola (2010-2015).

“This EP is a conceptual journey through the paradoxes of human thinking, in the form of a five acts tragedy: from the illusion of being an autonomous and creative entity, to the realization of its deepest constraints. Throughout the struggle to discover its origin, thought moves towards the nothingness from which it came, accepting that the only act of freedom left is to perpetrate its own dissolution.”
