In 2012, VDGG’s new album ALT is released. The opening track is “Earlybird”.
The idea of the project that will carry the name of the track comes to Shabalin in 2013. Contacted by the artist, Hammill, Grant and Banton give their approval and adhere to the project. VDGG’s official photographer Paul Ridout sends and allows usage of the photos taken during the recording of ALT.
