“All I still just really want is to see my grandparents. This was my first Christmas away from home and had Covid not happened there is no way I would have spent those months anywhere but with my family.”

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph about ringing his brother when he missed him, Paul said:

“I rang my brother, because I was feeling a little down, and he just said, `Oh will you just be … happy you’re in Sydney!’ And he’s right. Now perspective is my best friend.”

It is yet to be confirmed when Bring Them Down will begin production.
