Frontman James Cook explained in regards to the groups absence, “It’s taken us a long time to get our music and our vision to where it is something we are really excited to share with everyone and we can’t wait to get back on stage and perform the new live set for all the people that have been hitting us up asking for shows.”
The release will coincide with the bands first full live show since 2015 to be announced in Melbourne later this month with rumours some very special guests coming along for the ride.
