And finally…
We recorded BACK at the iconic Shepherds Bush Empire. I’ve watched it, and it’s a pretty fkn tight little gig, if I do say so myself. It’s being mixed and graded and when it’s all pretty I’ll let you know when we’re gonna release it. Stay tuned!

And thank you. We are so lucky to have been able to work (on and off) through this mad old time.
*heart* *thank you* *heart*
