"This album is about friendship, good times and redemption - losing your way, then finding it - over and over.
"It's very song-driven, before the drums and guitars were the songs - and they were easy to write. We wrote with open hearts and fed off the music we all loved growing up. There was no commercial agenda, just to write and perform good music that was real."
Guitarist Paul Sayer adds: "I'm really excited that we can now tell everyone when and where to get our album. I know there are people looking forward to hearing it and it's amazing that it's already in the pre-order charts. All our heart and soul went into making it and I'm immensely proud of it."
