“We are really looking forward to our upcoming shows,” said COS guitarist Mick Michaels. “It’s been a couple of months since we last played live, so we are ready to go… We’ve been working on a new album… our goal this year is to focus heavily on that…so we plan to do a lesser number of live shows but ones with a little more of a punch to them.” he added.
