Southern California rock quartet Culprit have premiered a new single entitled “Totem,” the title track from their forthcoming EP to be released on August 20th via Easy Killer Records and Apparel. The new EP, produced by Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Consider the Thief) and Erik Ron (I the Mighty, Panic! at the Disco, VersaEmerge), will be Culprit’s follow-up effort to 2011’s independently released Analogue. Having added Pennsylvania-born guitarist Brian Fulda in late 2011, this will be the first completed album with the new lineup.

Vocalist Travis Powell touches on the capacity of Totem saying, “In the movie Inception, the characters use objects referred to as ‘totems’ to keep them grounded within their dreams. Music is my totem, it’s what keeps me from losing sight on what is important.” Guitarist Brian Fulda adds, “We are able to understand each other a lot better as people because of this writing process, and the time it took to reach that point was essential, even if it took us a little over two years to complete. I think recording with Dryw Owens only furthered this level of comfort and understanding.”
