2020 is starting with good news as Steven Hart has mentioned in a recent New Year facebook post that the releases of the new studio material dating back to the early days of GIVE are in the plans for 2020.
According to the band's history post aside from the songs on the debut EP GIVE had recorded eight more song that were shelved. As for now four of them were released between 2017 and 2019, which means halfway through.
But not only studio material but surprisingly the live recordings as well to be also in plans for the release.
This means that more new music featuring Chris Link might be on the way. Can only wish for all the plans and ideas for GIVE to materialize in the New Year!
