Set it Off released their sophomore full length album, Duality, on Equal Vision Records today, October 14. The Tampa, FL based quintet takes on a more pop sound in this release but keeps their strong cinematic feel.

The album features guest vocals from Jason Lancaster, former frontman for Go Radio, and label-mate William Beckett.
