All that remains is finalizing the arrangements for the last two tracks. "The album's title will be 'Sine Qua Non', which is Latin for 'without this nothing' — which means, 'without this part of my life, the rest would be meaningless.' "The album will be comprised of nine tracks and will run approximately 65 minutes. "We will be debuting three or four of the new tracks at the Dallas Doom Daze III festival in April." ELLIOTT'S KEEP's debut album, "In Medias Res" (from the Latin for "in the middle of things"), was released in November 2008 through Brainticket Records.
