Update From Ben

Bonjour! Ca Va? Just dropping in to say hello and to see how everyone is doing? On our end, things are going great. We’ve been in our little cave working away for the last couple of months and things are really starting to take shape! The songs thus far are unlike anything we’ve ever done before yet it still seems to capture the urgency of our first record. Hard to put in words but the vibe is really special. Anyway we are doing a handful of shows this summer in Canada which we’re stoked about but we’re getting asked a lot about when we will be officially heading back out on the road. At this point there is no time frame for touring as our main priority is finishing writing and recording this new record! I will promise you that once this beast is ready to come out of its cage we will be touring everywhere for a very very long time! We miss all of our fans but I will say that it will be well worth the wait!

I hope you’re all healthy and happy…on a side note if you live in Canada remember to vote on Monday May 2nd! You can’t be heard if you don’t speak up.

All the best to you and everything you do.

Much Love,

Ben
