The Twilight Garden began in 2008 as a solo project by Todd Loomis while still a member in the electro industrial act Velvet Acid Christ (member from 2005-2009). In early 2010, The Twilight Gardens debut album entitled "a world we pretend" was released on Projekt Records. It received mainly good reviews and opened doors for The Twilight Garden with DJ support and club play. Drummer Chris Kutz and keyboardist/bassist Patrick Hogan teamed up with Todd Loomis to form a live band and in the summer of 2010, they did a short tour as part of an invitation to play the Projektfest 2010.

The new album (titled "Hope") is now complete and is scheduled to be released in November of 2012.
