“We are so happy about our first show in Iceland, and the tour also starts from Iceland,” the band commented. Wang Wen’s sound is eclectic and emotional, and they spent a lot of time experimenting with different instruments and sounds during the making of “Sweet Home, Go!”

The band are currently recording their tenth album in the Sundlaugin studio, owned by Sigur Rós. “After the tour we will be back in China and start preparing for our new album release, as well as a big tour in China,” the band said.
