I guess it’s kinda funny, really. In a way…
We had pressed pause on our band with the first lockdown, back in ‘20. We had recently grown into a 4 piece and were pretty much ready for live shows.
I was being super cautious of the plague, as Crohn’s Disease had been a fecker to me for so long and no-one knew how C19 would affect that.
So, the band were understanding and kept things on the back burner. (Still proud of our lockdown Tool cover). Matt the drums moved away, so then we were 3.
But it’s been a long coupla years, so we decided, hey, let’s get things going again. Let’s relaunch ourselves by releasing a single!
So we got it all arranged; paid for and booked in. ‘What about Friday 13th?’ I said. ‘Wouldn’t that be funny’…
And then, last week, I got COVID for the first time. 🤦♂️ 9+ days today and still going strong… hahaha…
All of which is to say, today we relaunch The Beginning and the End with a single we should’ve released 2 and a half years ago!
If you wanna help us out, please add this song to a playlist on your streaming service, share it around, play it loud in your car on your way home from work, etc.
We made a handy page with all the links you might need to find it for streaming, right now: thebeginningandtheend.co/superego/
Thank you! Love from
Jamie (and Matt and Andy)
Hey-ohhh! It’s been a while, huh? Matt and I planned to do this for Robb’s Gig 2020, back in December, but workloads, health-troubles and general life busyness delayed getting it finished… UNTIL NOW. Hope you like it! 🤞✌️

We were originally planning to release this on Friday, but we thought we’d give Tool a break and let them have their day. They’ve been waiting 13 years. We’ve only been waiting 4.
We’re super psyched and also incredibly nervous to share this with you!
If you enjoy it, please share it with a friend!
If not, maybe you’ll like some of our other songs; stick around and find out… 🙂
‘Terminal’ is the first single from The Beginning and the End’s upcoming debut E.P., ‘OUROBOROS’, released Sept 13th 2019.
Now, before you ask yourself ‘why would I pre-order an E.P. by a band I’ve never heard?’, let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you would do such a thing:
You can’t help but love our oddly-arranged facial features and quirky personality traits.
You have judged that based on our previous output, this one will be right up your alley, and of sufficient quality to warrant owning for yourself.
You feel you owe one or both of us something (you don’t, but go with it if you feel that buying yourself something will lighten your burden).
You’re worried no one else will buy it and you’re such a sweetheart that you don’t want us to feel bad after all we’ve been through to get to this point…
Your name is Rich.
If you’re more committed to the iTunes or Amazon shopping systems, hold tight! We’ll have pre-order links for them in the next week or so.

We’ve made ourselves a lil space to fill with musics and images and a word or two. But mostly musics.
