The clip was shown on the VIVA television. We plan two other videos for this album for the Ami éltet and the Egyetlen songs. The CD will contain a multimedia section as well with videos, mp3s from the previous albums and pictures. We haven't found a record company for the new album, so we are collecting money and we will publish it on our own. In our home town, we had started a Rock club to have opportunity for young talented bands to show themselves in public.
In 2006, we have started our new webpage first time in english as well. We have continuosly concerts and we still collect money for the new album. We plan to release it in the end of summer. See You on the summer festivals.
