“At first the idea was to release a 4-track EP with new material, just like we did back in 1983 with our ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’ debut. Not a full album, just an EP with four killer songs. But a few days before we entered the studio to record the new tracks, we were listening to the tapes of some summer festival shows we had recorded earlier that year, solely for our own archives. The recordings were raw and 100% live, but the tapes sounded so good, it would’ve been a shame not to use them. So grew the idea to release a double EP. With the four new songs on the A-side of the vinyl version and on the B-side the four songs from the ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’ EP, in a 2014 live version, the way the current line-up plays these songs today. Old and new gathered in one.”

‘Last Tribe Standing’ was produced by guitarist Dario Frodo and mixing engineer Pete Mush and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica, Amaranthe, Evergrey, Pretty Maids). The artwork for ‘Last Tribe Standing’ was created by the talented Velio Josto from Italy.  As a tribute to the early days the band decided to reuse the original logo that was only featured on the 1983 debut ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’.
