Yes, it's available NOW and yes, it's 100% FREE. The digital EP consists of three high-quality 320k MP3s totaling more than 30 minutes of music, as well as a high-resolution digital copy of the EP's front and back cover art (shown below), courtesy of lungful design. The EP was recorded, mixed, and mastered by AJ Peters (Disappearer, Riff Cannon) at Black Box Studio in Hansen, MA.
