Through “Diary” the band came into high radio airplay both in Greece and in America, where many college radio stations included songs like “Welcome” and “Heart Pills” in their playlists. This was only the beginning. “Diary” was released by American label “Poison Tree Records”, while single “Ophelia” which is included in their second album was used as the soundtrack of “Drag Hell Zombies” next to Pamela Moore.

Collaborations with Craig Walker (X-Archive), Johnny Bacolas (Second Coming, Alice in Chains) and Jeff Martin (Tea Party) were highlights of the band’s trajectory. There has never been a Greek group achieving to gain this kind of praise and recognition so fast within the country and abroad as well.
