"The addition of Matt, Eric and Shawn to this band has taken the songwriting to another level. I am proud to have shared the stage with all of the previous TH members but I feel the chemistry of the new line-up is the best to date. I can't wait for every one to experience the new line up for themselves." - Ken Pride
