I'm very happy about this. As you know I was a big fan of Erik last year in Idol and was delighted when he won. However it would be fair to say that his solo career hasn't really gone according to plan (like some other previous Idol winners), so I'm glad that he will finally get the chance to showcase his undoubted vocal talent in his natural environment - rock music.
Looking forward to some new music from them. I still love their Melodifestivalen entry "1000 Miles" - and I wonder if they'll ever compete in MF again?
