Although we’ve been busy lately with recording new songs (it’s still ongoing), we haven’t forgotten about our duty to play festivals in the summer. This coming Saturday we’ll return to Austria to play Rock Am Berg in Berndorf (near Vienna).

We’ve also managed to book a gig in Berlin’s coolest venue for September. Life is good.
