Well yesterday the entire band, with the exception of myself and one of our singers/rappers left for London in order to re-establish themselves over there and give it a go in a new market/country.
Unfortunately, I did not join them due to financial commitments I have here and the time simply wasnt right for me as Im also involved in other projects..

Here are some pics from our last rehearsal, the album launch and finally our farewell concert.

You can check out some samples from the tracks on the album by going to http://www.sonveneno.com/

Tracks will auto play once you enter the site.
By the way, for anyone going onto the site ( http://www.sonveneno.com ) the sample tracks that auto play freeze on song 6, it wont load. You will need to click on track 7 for the audio to continue so you may hear the rest of the tracks from the album.



Ok here come the pics....

Last ever rehearsal...
