We are currently back in writing mode and working on three new songs. Working titles below:
We think these three songs will not only take us back to our roots of good hard rock music, but also paint a kaleidoscope of layers and colours that haven’t been seen from the band before.
Looking forward to getting back in the studio with Joe de la Hoyde and working some magic with him.
Here is our debut music video and the official release of our new single Downpour.
Huge thanks to all involved who helped bring this together.

Legend has it, that Steve once rocked out so hard, he actually began to emit an eerie glow due to the pure heat being generated.

Absolutely inspired last night by Royal Blood who are redefining rock in 2018.
For a band like us, it gives us hope that when you put out good music and play with passion there is still the audience out there who will rise up and support it.

I got reminded of a few very important lessons of song writing while working on some new Cicada material. Simple is always better than complicated, taking away can give more than adding, and melody is always king.
We used to have a saying that less is more, and nothing can be closer to the truth.
Keen to release plenty more new music in 2018 and get back to the basics of writing good rock music 🤙🏼
