Premiered on CVLT Nation, and released on August 17th, The Hearth was released via Cleopatra Records and is available on all streaming platforms as well as on CD via their Bandcamp page. In this album the band manages to masterfully blend the sounds of classic post punk with a newer, modern touch and approach. The result is beautiful melodies, clear vocals, and a nostalgic sound that takes one straight back to the 80’s.

The creation of the record was the product of a lot of experimenting. Some tracks are based of older songs, while others are the result of simple riffs and melodies coming to life in the studio while playing around with various instruments. Creux Lies also believes it would be remiss not to credit Californian red wine in the writing process of this album. The band completed the production of The Hearth in late 2017, recorded at Earthtone Studios in Sacramento. The album was tracked under the innovative care of producer/engineer Patrick Hills (King Woman, Tera Melos, So Stressed)
