Greywind have said: “Recording our debut album at Sonic Ranch in Texas was such a special experience for us. One of our aims when we started Greywind was to one day record in America so to record our debut album over there was incredible. So many of our favourite artists have recorded at Sonic Ranch, the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Gerard Way and Brand New so it’s amazing to be part of that studios history now. We’re so proud of this album and we hope people enjoy it as much as we did writing and recording it.”
