Enabler announced the impending release of their second full length “La Fin Absolue Du Monde” the other day and the artwork from Chris Smith of Gray Aria Design Studio (& a proud member of the Pitts, PA band’s Meth Quarry & Hindsight) has been revealed. Smith is a popular illustrator in the Pittsburgh scene and shares his thoughts on how he became involved in crafting the visual look and feel of the forthcoming Enabler release.
Chris Smith: I first saw Enabler 2 years ago here in Pittsburgh at Roboto with Cop Problem and Neon Warship. All three bands blew me away. I had already done some art and merch for Neon Warship at that point. Cop Problem was just bonkers – I met Josh (Cohen) their drummer, through a mutual friend who writes for Josh’s online entity – Blow The Scene. Enabler came on and completely floored me – they had a second guitarist and Andy Hurley behind the kit at that time. I went ahead and scooped up all their music and some merch as well. Enabler stopped back here for a stacked show with Tragedy headlining at The Shop last August – a day before I was to leave for my Adirondack vacation. The show was awesome and all the bands were great. Enabler had released All Hail The Void and Shift of Redemption earlier that year. After the show, Adam Thomas (No Time/Blood Pressure/ex-Heartless) was asking people if they had somewhere for Enabler to stay – so I told them I lived right down the street and they could stay over. We hung out at the house for the remainder of the evening and the next morning they were off to Philly. Jeff mentioned hitting me up for art for future Enabler endeavors before leaving.”
