“It’s a story about Martin taking a big look at his life after a dire medical diagnosis that forced some real change… when I walked into his life I was dropped into a place where he had a Doctor’s appointment and told that he could die in six to eight months” – Julia

“It wasn’t always easy… there was nothing that quite prepared me for what we uncovered in terms of my own past, in terms of relations with previous band members who are still hurting after all this time. It’s been a lot of opening of old wounds to some extent but also a lot of healing; it’s been a long process but I’m really, really pleased with the outcome” – Martin
