"So, we've got a couple of announcements to make. One of which won't come as a surprise to a few of you that have seen us play so far this year.
"Firstly, Jake is no longer with the band. He had to call it a day for personal reasons last year. We didn't really want to announce this when it happened because it came at a time where we knew we would have to take a bit of a time out anyway, to write new stuff and to get our own work/financial stuff sorted out a bit.
"Being in a band is a number of things, it's SUPER fun and exciting, but also really hard work, expensive and time consuming. We needed to be in a place where we were totally ready to put out new material.
"With that in mind....we are happy to announce that we are currently in the studio recording the next release! We are so proud of the stuff we have written for this and we hope you love it as much as we do. More...
