Sees have announced that they will release a new EP titled 'In & Between' in December of this year. It will feature 4 previously unused tracks. About this, vocalist Bryan Malke says: "We've had a bunch of tracks lying around for a while now and thought that we'd release them as an EP rather than let them go to waste. It also gave us a chance to become better acquainted with Eric, our new guitarist, and play around with a bunch of new gear before we lock ourselves in the studio for the full length. We have a bunch of tracks in the works and I'm really excited where we're headed." Sees released their album 'The enD' for free earlier this year. It can be downloaded from http://www.seesdownload.com.

He indicates that it is scheduled to be released in March 2012, and that all band members are currently participating in the writing process (which was not the case for previous albums).
About the band's stylistic direction on the new record, he says: "This time, from what it feels right now, it's gonna be a little bit slower and a little bit groovier album. But that's just generally. I think that we will like this album better than the media."
