The Cradle decided to go home again on his new album, The Glare of Success, but he’s not interested in rediscovering some missing creative magic. No – he’s not here to move back in – he’s here to deconstruct the house, strip it of its parts, and create an entirely new home from its component pieces.
The band’s upcoming album, The Glare of Success is a reimagining of Bag of Holding in a way, reworking ideas and pieces of the once melodic wonder into something mind-bending, warped, and unequivocally new. While their may be familiar aspects, this record its own monster, a disorienting drift into dub rhythms, divergent compositions, manipulated layers, and what the label calls “musical recycling.”

Adaption is in the in air around "Can't Recall The Good Times" but it's filtered through The Cradle's unique view.
