You are the captain of the last remaining battleship in the fleet. A relentless, overwhelming enemy has emerged to abduct your people. There's no time to colonize planets, negotiate with alien races, or build an empire. You're outnumbered, out-gunned, and low on resources. Knowing when it's time to fight or flee will be the key to saving the human race.

The Sun and The Sea (ex-The Graduate) are selling two versions of their song "Can't Keep Breaking Your Heart" on Bandcamp in order to fund their new music video
From the PostWould you like to become a 'backer' for our music video? Since we have been doing everything independently, we have been thinking 'outside-the-box' with some different ideas. We've decided, in order to fund our music video, that we would try something new.

We’re allowing anyone to be able to back our video for $25 or more. With the $25, you will be able to download two different versions of “Can’t Keep Breaking Your Heart” as well as a video of a live/acoustic performance that we filmed during the making of the...

The Graduate has gone on an indefinite hiatus.
Message from the BandYou may have noticed things have been very quiet lately around The Graduate camp. If you’ve followed our band closely you know that the past few years have been full of trials, twists, and turns. We did everything we could to keep things going this long, however after almost 6 years The Graduate has begun entering the realm of indefinite hiatus.

We all feel extremely lucky to have been able to play so many shows in so many different places, and want to personally thank everyone who came out to a gig, picked an album or shirt, bought us a drink, helped us book a concert, let us crash in your homes, and everything...
