It's the first time we've made a studio recording with our new drummer Ross behind the kit. The EP is 4 tracks, 3 of which are re-recordings of Pantomime Cannon tracks. We'd be really interested to hear what you think of the differences! Each track also has an accompanying video recorded during the live takes of us in the studio.
