Seven months ago, who knew when it would be or even if we could get back on the road.  But here we are, picking right back up where we left off.  A heartfelt thanks to everyone’s unconditional love and support for us through, let’s hope, the hardest time this band will ever see.  We told you we’d be back so let’s do this thing!”
