Guitarist Jensen checked in with the following report: "Not known as a band that likes to rest on our laurels, we're pushing ahead with the follow-up to last year's 'Exit Wounds' album! We have most of the stuff written already, looking to record in August/September and to have it released before the end of this year. We're very excited about the new material and can't wait to give you the chance to hear it! Better nail down the roof in good time...and reserve the top spot on your x-mas wish list for this upcoming aural bad boy!"
