Some information about this new album, taken from our press release:
Soon after the release of their debut album Omit started writing new material. The recording of this new material got started at the Secret Quarters Studios in the beginning of 2014 and, initially, resulted in a full length album with the title of Medusa Truth Part 1. Mixing and mastering of this album took place during the summer of the same year, and got completed in time to make Secret Quarters Records' autumn release window. Medusa Truth Part 1 was then announced to be released on November 26th, 2014.

As "Part 1" in the title suggests, the album is a part of a series of albums that will attempt to portray a sequence of events in the period of a person's life. Part 1 deals with a certain series of events, in three parts (or sub-parts or chapters, if you will) corresponding to the number of tracks on the album. The following album (or albums) will seek to musically describe other events in the life of the protagonist.

The title of the album was inspired by the following passage from The Mutiny of the Elsinore by Jack London: "The profoundest instinct in man is to war against the truth; that is, against the Real. He shuns facts from his infancy. His life is a perpetual evasion. Miracle, chimera and to-morrow keep him alive. He lives on fiction and myth. It is the Lie that makes him free. Animals alone are given the privilege of lifting the veil of Isis; men dare not. The animal, awake, has no fictional escape from the Real because he has no imagination. Man, awake, is compelled to seek a perpetual escape into Hope, Belief, Fable, Art, God, Socialism, Immortality, Alcohol, Love. From Medusa-Truth he makes an appeal to Maya-Lie."
