The Terror State

Released just before the start of the Iraq War in 2003, The Terror State is a stark commentary on sending our children off to war. The album was photographed entirely with Polaroid film and purposefully underdeveloped to achieve an antiqued military feel. Each of the interior booklet's 24 pages shows images of war, hand-lettered lyrics, and essays written by the band to help their fans make informed decisions about the world around them.

The message of this album's cover art was highlighted in the 2010 documentary film Sounds Like A Revolution. You can watch a clip of it here.
