The band with the fattest synth lines are back (argue that) and have returned with an album with a different approach. For the first time the band have recorded produced and released the entire package, a downfall for some bands, but for those with imaginations, good rewards.

This album is packed with songs that tick boxes:
Big synths yes
Hooky choruses - yes
Danceable yes
Still dark yes

Standout tracks are opener Get Seduced and Psycho but the album gets a lot more interesting as it gets going with more glitch and electro fuck-outs.

New fans will love it - old fans will wear it.
