Quote from NMEI have a concrete plan when I get some time off next year to do a hardcore band again, I'm talking to some people about it, it's coming together. It'll be a side project, because I'm doing what I want to do now, but I grew up playing heavy music and I want to play it again. Expect that some time next year.
