Of the girls we do best to write songs. " Says guitarist Steve Klein. " But on this album, we tried to go in some other direction. There is a song, such as the grandfather of Jordan, who left this world, a song about how we left our hometown, and of all that. But in general, we tried to album keep the same mood as the melody. " "Sticks And Stones" proved to be more diverse in sound.For the recording of the album musicians friends were invited, among whom were musicians from the group H2O, Alkaline Trio and Blink- 182.
Where is the next stop of the group, only the driver knows their minivan. But wherever they stopped, wherever performed, the audience will accept them as their own, because they are really my boys.
