After a long and winding road with 40 some-odd shows during the summer of 2007, which brought them through Holland, Germany, Belgium, and England, the band returned to Barcelona in the fall with 12 new songs and a desire to create. Teaming up once again with producer Dave Bianchi at the Emergency Room studios, the group set out to take their unique sound even further for their second album. This time there was a different theme, as the title Battery Park would suggest, “Organic vs. Electronic.”
