So here we are in November, slowly reaching the end of an eventful year, a year that has seen the release of 2 singles for us… ‘Lady Night’ (which includes unreleased track ‘Silent In Shame’), and more recently our new single ‘Alice’ off the new album (scheduled in early 2016) and which also includes a couple of instrumental ditties (these won’t be on the next album, so you better get your hands on them now!)
We want to take this opportunity to thank the radio stations and streaming sites that are already giving us exposure for the single, cheers guys!
