The studio session was captured at the iconic Michael Fowler Centre in the band’s hometown of Wellington during the pandemic lockdown. Devoid of audience, it’s a reflection of the surreal times that’s halted tour life 2020. The ‘LOCK-IN’ eight-track digital and vinyl release is Freddys way of giving back to fans worldwide.
