Three years after releasing their second album, a whole new band takes the stage. After preparing their third album for two years, Smak came to a point where it felt natural to switch the language.- We've always wanted to write the lyrics in English. At the age of 14 our linguistic abilities just weren't good enough. We've always wanted to make everything by ourselves so before this album we just weren't ready for it
