All three solo albums will be available to purchase as a digital download directly from the bandcamp site. All three albums are priced at $7 (usd). They will also be available on iTunes and Amazon in the near future.
All proceeds from purchases on the bandcamp site go directly to finance Galas' future work and studio. It is suggested to NOT purchase the original release of 'The Cataclysm' from iTunes (or anywhere else except his bandcamp site) at this time. The Catalcysm is available on his bandcamp site with the addition of bonus tracks. He has a limited amount of signed physical CD's that can be ordered directly through bandcamp. Or you can purchase new sealed CD's through Twilight Records.

Isolation Grind - review of Lycia - A Line That Connects - "This sounds and feels like vintage Lycia through and through; one of the rare cases where reassembling a band's "classic lineup" has produced new material on par with their previous works."
