Steve remarked "when I heard the demo of their new song I was impressed on first listen. I am looking forward to working with the band again whom I last worked with in the 80s on one of my favourite albums I have ever produced – ‘The Crossing’".
 
“It will be a real buzz working with Steve again, he is a producer we all have a great regard for and are looking forward to working with again”. "We’d also like to thank all the festival promoters for having faith in us". says Tony Butler.
