To celebrate our 25th anniversary as a band in 2021, we had planned to record, release and tour a special album ‘It Wasn’t Hard to Love You’ (an ode to our fans). However, COVID 19 put a stop to this! We usually fund our albums through income from live shows, but due to the Corona crisis we cannot play live, and because we cannot play live we can not fund the album!
