    We are happy to announce an upcoming gig at the 12 Points Festival in Umeå, Sweden.

    After touring in Finland with our superstar guests, we are now preparing a set of tunes for trio and can’t wait to get to play abroad again! Other than that we get to hear all the fantastic bands at the festival!

    Our performance takes place on Saturday the 12th of April. Set your alarm clocks, since the gig starts already at three o’clock in the afternoon!

    Hope to see you there!
