The Everblack Podcast took a journey into into the unknown with Planet of the 8s frontman and bass player Michael “Sullo” Sullivan to talk about their new EP “Lagrange Point Vol I“, the incredible line up of guests they recruited for the project, the scientific meaning behind the title and how it ties into the concept, his thoughts on the current thriving Aussie desert rock/metal scene and more!

The geometry of the five Lagrange points anchors the cover art and is embellished by Artofmaquenda’s interpretation of the wolf as some kind of creative earth mother, the many hands passing blood to flesh, meditating on the pain of birth and creation, and the insights gained therein. With the foundations of the songs salvaged from a bunch of discarded tracks, remnants of pre-production from their previous album. “Lagrange Point Vol I” has evolved into a release that stands up on its own – diverse yet uncannily cohesive. More than just a side project, it embodies the very essence of what Planet of the 8s is about: the bringing together of minds, bodies and souls to create and experience. something that never existed before.
