The single “Sweet Temptation” was voted one of the “Top 100 Songs of 2006” in Blender magazine.
After Touring “Inside the Hollow” and with the sudden and unexpected demise of Maverick Records. Alicia and founding member Louise Burns decided to depart the band. The Evin sisters have taken time to regroup and made a key decision to take on hard-hitting rock drummer Eric Hoodicoff (whom they have indefinitely borrowed from his renowned metal project Savage Blade). Lillix’s new line up is delving into sexy melodic dance grooves while incorporating a new sophisticated approach to their pop sensibility.
