Cure abortions & the infinite frustration

cure-abortions

If there is one thing that I totally hate about the band that I totally love, is this perpetual flirting, this never-ending teasing when it comes to possible releases or projects, as most of the time they are just left at an embryonal state, and they eventually never see the daylight.
