2012 is over and what a year it was! We played great shows on 3 continents, all major festivals at great positions and realised our new album "VENI VIDI VICI" which was the biggest undertaking in the band's history so far. From the writing, production and the recording process to the casting, shoot and layout of the artwork over to product design this has taken the best of all of us, but we are damn proud of the finished product.
2012 has also been the year where more and more people tried to denounce and discredit us, where we got insulted from stage by fellow musiciansm where T-shirts and PSAs were made in a campaign to stop us and where we faced serious personal threats for what we are doing and stand for. Nevertheless it was a great year and at every show YOU, our fans, prove the haters wrong and us right in what we are doing.
