Autographed! The band returns with the last part of their trilogy and the third album since their reunion. Named "Efter Efter", meaning After After, I hope this name and the album being a trilogy closer don't imply the band is done with. Thinking about it, it seems not likely at all, as they have been getting media coverage and enthusiastic responses to their last albums and they've been touring and will continue to do so, in and outside their homeland of Sweden.
