“Thanks to everyone who checked out the instrumental set on this tour. We had a blast. Maximum love to Contorts, Entheos, sleepmakeswaves and all crew for understanding. Yall rule.”

“THE TRUTH ALWAYS REMAINS. Since we are fed up with the lies on social media, and as we promised yesterday, here is the proof that we tell you the truth about what is going on.

“Here you can read the signed protocol documents (English and German) – certified by lawyer Frank Dehn – which proves that the news about the protocol from the mediator of our crucial band meeting is accurate and correct in every way.

“Furthermore the protocol shows that the decisions were made together! Since January this year Liv’s exit from the band was already pending. We hope, we have finally cleared up the situation for every one now! Like posted before we wish Liv all the best for her future!”
