City Under FireWhat is an illusion? The dictionary defines it as a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. So in other words it messes with your mind man. As such City Under Fire has created their first EP release entitled “Illusions”. Thus the whole deal of illusions is upon us. Without further doing so, City Under Fire is determined that this illusion becomes a reality.
