When asked about their returning the band told us:
"We are stoked to be returning to Sydney. You made us all feel incredibly welcomed last year and we were totally blown away by how big a turn out there was at each of our gigs. Super keen to catching up with old friends and playing alongside some of the bands we played with last time and share the stage with the new line-ups! Some awesome bands have joined us for next month. We will get down and dirty at each venue, with all of you. We love Australia!"
A limited selection of merch including their CD “Electric Demon” (released on Zodiac Killer Records) an infused slab with influences from Hellacopters to MC5) will be available.
