A little bit of Dub - Our next single 

So it has been a while since our last single... well.. our first single Sunshine back in Oct 2013.

New Songs and more!

Lately you will find RI in the rehearsal studio a lot, writing new songs, re-shaping songs, letting those creative juices to immerse them. The band is excited to let all their fans know that a number of fantastic tunes have already been written and are being road tested at their gigs at the moment.
