In September 2011, the group announced the album on their website. One of the members, Carlos Marin, describes the recording of the new album as "unbelievable - you can really hear the evolution. And that connection between us, the way that the combination produces magic, it's stronger than ever." Swiss member Urs Buhler said he believes this new album will delight you, the fans, as much as it has them. "We think it's the best thing we've ever done."[2]
