It's the most wonderful time of the year - so says the popular song of old. This is true to a degree although being honest we'll probably all admit that things feel very different this year.

Remember November 2019 when we all laughed at the Blade Runner memes about post-apocalyptic worlds that seemed a million miles away from where we currently were? Then 2020 happened.
Wherever you are, whatever your situation or view on life, you can’t argue that this year and its unprecedented events hasn’t affected you in some way or another. This was the year the world stayed home - or should have anyway…
It’s really been a historic and turbulent 12 months. We just need Gojira and Rodan to turn up to complete the set.
In a weird way, this has turned out to be a momentous year for me as an artist. I found inspiration and made the most of this forced retreat, and if I can humble-brag a little bit, I’m really happy with the results of it.
We learned that lockdown didn’t fully silence live music and I really enjoyed playing live where and how we could this year.
I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making a difficult year much brighter. I hope that your upcoming holiday season is full of joy and I look forward with hope that we’ll see each other again in 2021!
