Q. USA tour plans ?
A. No US gigs planned but recently things seem to crop up unexpectedly so I can't say we won't tour there this year.
Q. Looking forward to anyone else at Sonicmania ?
A. I was rally looking forward to Slipknot but they've cancelled. Now I'm just hoping to be surprised by someone (ie a band, not a person leaping out of the shadows).

A. Tour diary. Good idea, I will do since I don't think I'm going to be too busy.

don't like us or something.
