"Volume 2 : Release" is the realisation of a year spent writing collectively. It's been a difficult time - a period of traumatic realignment after the unexpected death of keyboard player Jo Bruce - but, after much soul searching, the band emerged to produce a dynamic and emotionally charged album that was destined to become one of the year's landmarks.

Simon Emmerson and Martin Russell's multi-layered production has many hidden depths, bringing out the delicacy of the acoustic instruments - harp, kora, talking drum, bodhran, djembe, whistle, guitar, Gaelic and African vocals - but placing them in a totally immersive Pan European context.

It's like a hurricane let loose...
...the spontaneity, the mix of ancient and modern, the black and white, the fluidity and breathless glee.
