Breathing for the First Time
Features a fast and furious new version of "Nothing will change" plus the warming & not easily forgotten ballad "My Memory".
After the radio success of "The Last Time", the bands pre-production release demo, which was tracked in Brisbane QLD with Festival/Mushroom producer Stuart Stuart at Chart song Productions (The Veronicas, Small Mercies), which later secured them as Finalists in the 2004 National Songwriting competition - SOYA (Noise), the band began to embark on their most ambitious project to date... "Breathing For The First Time" the bands debut official release, had the benefit of time in production. Original writing began early 2004, and in 2005 the band sought out the help of their friend and producer Stuart Stuart (The Veronicas, Small Mercies) again to Co-Produce with the band. "Breathing For The First Time" was to later be mixed by 2005 Aria Award Winning Engineer of the year Matt Lovell (Silverchair, INXS, Lotel, Sarah McLeod), and was Mastered by Steve Smart at 301 Studios Sydney. (Breathing For The First Time is distributed nationally through MGM Distribution).
"I believe these guys are onto something fresh and different here, killer hooks, a big fat professional sound and plenty of attitude..."

The Last Time
Recorded in 2003 was a primary source of promotion to radio stations throughout Australia. "The Last Time" a heavily featured track out of the four songs was a raging success and had a strong influence in the lead-up to the next release "Breathing For The First Time".
Phalluscentric the debut release from Lik-Wid, featuring 5 tracks of a heavier nature with songs like "10 Fold" and "Incision" which were quickly made crowd favourites while the band toured around NSW on a solid run of shows for 2001.
