The band ended 2006 in Hawaii, playing their New Years Eve show at the Hilton Waikola Village. Prior to that, the band had been due to play dates in Australia and New Zealand in November and December, but the tour had to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond the bands control.

Some nice pictures from the bands October visit to Japan can be found on the Hard Rock Cafe's site at

Rick and Robin appeared on National Public Radio's "World Cafe" show broadcast on 14 December, and the show can still be heard online at (and click on the "Listen" button on that page). It's a nice 30 minute mix of interview and live songs, with the duo performing acoustic versions of "I Want You to Want Me", "Perfect Stranger" and "The Flame"

Several sets of new photos can be found from recent shows and events, and there is a long list of press/media links to follow too.
