The song is titled 'V.K.T.', or 'Viezen Kut Thierry' in full. It deals with the ongoing unfortunate rise of populism. Have a listen and we'd like to hear your thoughts on the song.

Recording/mixing/mastering The album is only sounding this good because of the great work by Marc and Sven at Perimeter Audio for the recording and mixing and Pier-Durk Hogeterp for doing the mastering. We love you.

The artwork has been made by the great Segolia Design. What a beauty, isn't it?!
