Junius / Rosetta is a split EP by American art rock band Junius and American post metal band Rosetta. After several years of planning, the title was made available on September 27, 2011 through Translation Loss in CD format and on November 22, 2011 through The Mylene Sheath in vinyl format. However, the vinyl release was limited, and only 1,000 copies have been pressed for distribution.[11] Junius / Rosetta includes two original tracks by both bands and a download card to obtain additional content online, including two cover songs originally by Soundgarden and Hum.

Kickstarter[edit]

Funding for studio time and mixing of the tracks "TMA-3" and "4th of July" was made possible by fan donations through Kickstarter.[12] Rosetta was highly successful in raising $2,611 through this project after a series of setbacks threatened to delay the split release further.[13]
