Friday 21. October will see the release of the Danish quartet’s debut album, “Black Smoke” The album is 11 tracks with a tasty mixture of influences. The song structure along the lines of Foo Fighters, the gravitas of Clutch and guitar harmonies worthy of Thin Lizzy.

Touching on everything from the teenage fuelled sex drive of a young man, obsession, to escapism and loss. The aim is to offer identifiable…
