They are working on their first full length CD, which they recorded with  John Paul Peters, who produced the most recent Propaghandi CD.

“We loved the sound of  the Propaghandi CD and we’d never heard of him before  but as soon as we found out who produced it, we knew we were on board with it,” Priestner said.

 She is excited to be back in Alberta, particularly in Lethbridge.

“We were just there at the end of July. This time, I think we’ll be playing a bunch of new songs. We’re better live performers now and more comfortable on stage. It’s going to be a lot of fun.  We’re super pumped to be back,” she continued.
