First of all we would like to apologize for not telling you this earlier, but as many of you probably have guessed, we've decided to quit the band.
Last summer we decided to take a break, and during this last year we all got different focus. It didn't feel right to continue with the band since it wasn't the number one priority, so we decided to not start again.
We would like to thank all of you who followed our carrier and supported us! We're so happy that so many of you enjoyed what we did! We had the time of our lives because of you! Thank you!
Until next time...
Back on Track
Sorry that we haven't updated our homepage in a while, but we decided to take a calmer period during the late spring and summer. But now we've charged our batteries, gathered a lot of inspiration and are as hungry as ever! The plan for the near future is to go back in the studio and make new songs for a coming album. We have no clue when we'll be ready to release it, but we hope that you don't need to wait too long!
Here's our brand new video for the song '45 Minutes'. As you can see it's definitely the hardest thing we've ever done as a band (try running as fast as you can for three and a half minute and you'll see ow hard it is!). But we're very happy with the result and our collapsed lungs!
