Mother Tongue

The following tour marked a new high point for the band, with numerous sold-out headlining shows and international festival slots.Conflicting schedules, various obstacles and a series of unfortunate events that lead to a split with their label and they have been independent since, releasing their self-funded EP Now or Never in 2004 and a second, untitled EP on their 2006 European Tour, with their fourth album Follow The Trail released in 2008.Of their future, vocalist and bassist David Gould says "Keep making records. Keep playing shows. Getting closer and closer to the fire. Burn with more intensity." « hide
