"This album is as much about us doing our thing and making a name for ourselves as it is representing Nottingham and helping to show what this city is capable of musically and artistically.” The band went on a stoner rock pilgrimage to Joshua Tree, Sky Valley and Death Valley in a bid for inspiration to write this album. The band also shot the photos used in the album design themselves during the pilgrimage. The band have appeared on stage with the likes of: The Atomic Bitchwax, Nebula, Truckfighters, Gentlemen's Pistols, Taint, Lazarus Blackstar and countless others. They are also due to play Desert Fest in Camden this April with Orange Goblin and COC! https://www.facebook.com/widows666
