So, 2017 is almost over and .... what a year it has been ! We had several great gigs, went to Germany for the first time (hopefully many will follow) and topped it all by playing at W-Festival (what a lovely crowd and organisation). We are looking very much forward to next year, with the new album Dictator coming up and our first show in London at the Synthetic City London 2018 Electronic Music Festival ! Hopefully France will follow as well, who knows. Thank you very much for your support last year, hope to see and meet you all again in 2018 ! <3 to you all !

Throwback Thursday : Tracks ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TETRw2rvKGs&list=RDTETRw2rvKGs

Now working on the new album Dictator. First upcoming live show : London !

So, some people have been waiting for the new album to come out for a long time now. True, all the songs have been written and if you have seen us live, you would have heard at least 5 new songs. However, due to various factors the release date was posponed several times. For now, we have no plans to hit the stage until Synthetic City in London. We want to take this time to finish the album Dictator. So, first gues is now somewhere in the first 3 months of 2018. We will keep you informed :-) I can tell you one thing : it is soo good !!!!!!
