And the fact that we haven't rehearsed or even jammed together (except the new years-show) after the studio makes the show even...raw? ...or sloppy might be the better word. But tomorrow we are finally getting the new rehearsal space running so maybe we'll try to rehearse few times before the show...PSYCHE! Ps. News about the release date of 'The Disease Of St. Vitus' coming up soon..."
