California rockers Culprit have released “Totem”,Â the title track from their forthcoming EP to be released on August 20thÂ via Easy Killer Records. Produced by Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Consider the Thief) and Erik Ron (I the Mighty, Panic! at the Disco), Totem will be Culpritâ€™s follow-up effort to 2011â€™s independently releasedÂ Analogue.
On the EP,Â Vocalist Travis Powell stated, â€œIn the movieÂ Inception, the characters use objects referred to as â€˜totemsâ€™ to keep them grounded within their dreams. Music is my totem, itâ€™s what keeps me from losing sight on what is important.â€ Guitarist Brian Fulda adds, â€œWe are able to understand each other a lot better as people because of this writing process, and the time it took to reach that point was essential, even if it took us a little over two years to complete. I think recording with Dryw Owens only furthered this level of comfort and understanding.â€
