EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED FROM UNEXPECT
We’re not quite sure what went south between The End Records and Montreal, QC progressive metal weirdos Unexpect, but it seems like these insanely talented Canadians are releasing their new record Fables of the Sleepless Empire themselves, not that self-releasing in this day and age is a bad thing at all. And a band as good as Unexpect is certainly capable.
