Get well soon, Benji!

The band cancelled a festival appearance this weekend, but Benji is said to be "On the road to recovery."

We wish him the very best.

We have unfortunately had to cancel our upcoming appearance at L'Boulevard Festival in Casablanca this coming weekend due to Benji being taken ill whilst on holiday in Jamaica.

Following a surgical procedure he is now on the road to recovery but sadly won't be able to perform at this coming weekends event.

We would like to apologise to all that were looking forward to seeing us there and we really hope to be able to perform at L'Boulevard Festival in 2016 if the opportunity to do so is still there.

Arya, Dan, Dan, Mikey and Benji."
