Down to the Moon

„Our group was playing very tightly together after several world tours. Many elements of this album had already been ‚tested’ in our performances. As we went into the studio in between live shows, some of that energy found its way on to the album. At the same time, it also signaled a temporary farewell. After extensively touring the U.S., Japan and Australia, we took a long creative break to nurture our motivation and unbroken explorer's spirits.”
