Other musicians scheduled to appear on the album include Kalle Torniainen of Brother Firetribe on drums and Pekka Lampinen of Leverage on bass.
Songwriting is well underway and sees contributions also from Pekka Heino (BROTHER FIRETRIBE, LEVERAGE), Tomppa Nikulainen (BROTHER FIRETRIBE), Tuomas Heikkinen (LEVERAGE) and Sami Hyde and others.
