Q: pretty crazy how you guys had to move just to do what you love. I feel lucky.

A: Thank you. Unfortunately this is true that the pressures, censorship and threats of the Iranian authorities made it impossible for us to go on making music, and we are living far away from our home as the price we are doomed to pay only to follow our ambition which is making music. We are betrayed by the Iranian cultural context in which we emerged; simply put, we do not feel that we belong to Iranian society; in fact, we are thrown out from Iran; however, we don't consider Sweden "home". Thank you again for your involvement and visit us sometimes.
