We'd like to thank all of our wonderful fans that came out to see us play during this short UK/Euro tour. We received such a warm welcome from you all and we couldn't have asked for a more enthusiastic audience. We wouldn't be where we are without you.
It was also great to hang out and spend some time with some of you lovely people after the gigs, you know who you are ;) Until next time!
