The first record was mainly about love and loss. This is a record about sex and death. The whole process was one of the heaviest and most extreme experiences we've had, but now we're on the outside looking in, it feels like we've made something truly unique and special."

'Exile'
'Miracle'
'Sandman'
'Blind'
'Only You'
