The band’s latest full-length studio CD is titled Black Widow, put out by Atlantic Records. Says Brink of the CD’s title: “Black Widow is a metaphor for this innocent young girl who gets infected with life, traumas, experiences, and the balance of light and darkness. She becomes this poised and powerful creature. That’s the album.”
