Interview with, talking 'iF' and 4D

Recently we did an interview with, talking about 'IF' and the process of completing this album. We go in to detail about where the band name came from, our 4D Live Music Experience and how we got to where we are now.

"I think it's a lot about taking risks and following up on something, completing something, and really going through with the ideas in your heart and mind," Enström explained. This is something the band members themselves experienced when making the decision to pick up and move to the United States.
