The band’s shift in musical identity will be reflected in their upcoming album ‘ROOH’, scheduled to go live on September 27th. ‘ROOH’, meaning ‘soul’, is a musical adaptation of the band's experiences,
struggles, emotions & self-awareness over the years, and will see an increase in lyrics & vocals compared to the band’s usual instrumental-led identity.

Pre orders for the album start from August 5th and the first single will go live on August 9th.
