RHI spent a rigorous 3 months in the studio crafting two new singles.

Along with the help of Matt Faulkner, former bassist of A Static Lullaby. "We paid attention to every detail. These songs are a tribute to Steven, so we had to make sure it was perfect." says Charlie. In the coming months, RHI will be hitting the road in support of the new material. "Were only getting started" says Adam. RHI is scheduled to hit the studio mid May to record their new E.P.
