“Our fans have waited a long time for this album, we are very pleased that we were able to release it. Although we could be saying ‘It would be great if our song is first on the charts’, we do not want to say that, we only want a fair chance to stand on stage to perform. However, even up till now we have not been given such a chance, which causes us a lot of distress.”
