Skeptics In Love

Release: 2010

"Just a one man band in a one man army..."

Skeptics In Love is a concept album. kosmos initially set out to write a 2nd half to The Bifurcation but the new material ended up forming a story of its own. The album is a nostalgic tribute to young love in small town middle America. What comes out as a single narrative is really an amalgam of frontman, Ben Tonak's experiences and observations, "Every song is a little bit inspired by one or more people I knew or had a relationship with – or maybe wished I had a relationship with –there's plenty of creative license taken."

Lyrics: 1. Small Town Rodeo 2.First Time, 3. Fuck Or Fight, 4. Time Was Marching, 5. Like The Sun, 6. End Of The Line

The Bifurcation

Release: 2008

"Call the doctors in, I'm going off the medicine"

The Bifurcation is a 5-song EP representing the first project with drummer Nick Fiore and guitarist Nate Mender. Fiore's rock solid drumming contributes a self-assured backbone to the band’s already solid arrangements and production values, and Mender’s guitars add a layer of texture and act as a compliment to B. Tonak’s unique voice and well-crafted lyrics.
