Desperate Lowlifes has been laying low, working on new music.  After the release of The Heartbreak Mixtape last year, the boys went on a promotional whirlwind that included radio, blogs and performed at many shows around Gauteng.

Towards the end of last year they took a break to work on new music; after all, The Heartbreak Mixtape was just a teaser.  The recording of new music is going quite well at the moment; and the boys hope to drop and EP or mixtape before the summer ends.
