This EP will be also availabe as digital stream/download and is the forerunner of the band’s third full-length album that will follow later in 2021!

It is our honor to have been able to work on two classic rock cover songs, from bands that helped shape music history. We are also very excited to give you a brand new AoA tune that will help introduce you to our next full length release under the amazing ROAR banner! Many thanks to all of the friends and fans who have supported our vision and our voice in the metal world!” – band comments
