History

With the Ni Tour ticket purchases, Area 11 offered the option to get the Tour Bundle which included 'Underline EP'. The EP was then also made available to pre-order separately. On the 2nd of November 2014, the EP download unlocked and then became available to buy on Amazon and iTunes.

EP 2 Notes

Before Underline was released, a picture of a notepad was posted to various Area 11 social media pages. The meaning of some of the notes have since been realized, others still have yet to be understood.

EP 2

Recording:

Homunculus - This song was given away free by the band some months prior to the EP release.

Are You Listening - First played as part of The Ichi Tour in Nottingham.

Agree & Amplify (Reference Seraphim) - Seraphim is the plural name for angels or other celestial beings in much of the old testament and Hebrew biblical works. Some of the Seraphim are Metatron, Kemuel, Nathanael, Gabriel, and Lucifer.

'Agree & Amplify' is also a tactic used in conversation .

Processor- This song was later released as the fifth track on Modern Synthesis.

Cassandra Pt. V - A continuation of the Cassandra saga with songs that directly link to the story. The song is likely to confirm or disprove theories of the different parts including System;Start and Prologue III (Echodeath).

Mobius Strippers - A Mobius Strip is an object with only one surface and one edge. This means that running your finger around one side of it means you will arrive at your start point and have crossed the whole of the surface. Mobius Strips are sometimes used in analogue tape recordings if the recording needs to be looped or continuous.

Pillows - Most likely another placeholder name.

For Later:

M, R, S- Probably more likely to be three separate words than an abbreviation.

PM - Often means Afternoon on the 12-hour clock or maybe Puppet Master. Could be another abbreviation.

Smihilism Twitter Logo

Smihilism - May be the opposite of Nihilism, something which is a negative emotion or the negation of certain things, the 'Sm' added onto it could be from the word 'smile' thus giving it a more postitive meaning. Smihilism is also the name of the record label in which Underline was released.

Sixeight - Note that '6/' is crossed out which could have been 6/8. This could represent the time signature of a future song and as thus it has been named that temporarily.

Other:

The smiley face is probably a crude rendition of a troll face.
