Enation's new album will be released on their own independent record label, Hilasterion Records, which has a major distribution through Sony RED. Their CD was aided via a Pledge Music campaign, which their fans were able to support.

Their EP will feature six new tracks, which include the title track "Blame-Shifter," "Ascending," as well as "Alleluia," "Let The Beauty Out," "Wasteland," and the closing track "Unchained Melody," the latter of which was recorded live at the hallowed Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville, Tennessee. These aforementioned songs will be included on a full-length studio project which will be released later in the year.
