Early 2008 alice nine. had to cancel several shows apart of a tour due to Tore injurying his hand.
Opinion: Only recently have I gotten really into alice nine., and to be honest I have no idea how to put into words how I feel about their music…Lets just say I’ve had one of their songs on repeat for the past few hours, it has played almost 300 times, and I am still loving it.
