After a long lay off they found themselves forced into inactivity due to the pandemic and decided to use the opportunity to remaster their debut record, ‘Death of Dreams,’ rediscovering their passion in the process. Riding a wave of creative momentum, they decided to get straight to work on their new album: ‘Same But Different.’ It is a triumphant return from a group whose strong vocals, poetic lyrics, and memorable melodies give them a timeless appeal.
