'Mature' So Solid make comeback

So Solid are back after a five year hiatus - but this time, they've grown up.
"We're not kids riding around on BMX bikes - we're back on a different plane.
"It's not about proving we're the best, we are more mature and it's about business too," said lead singer Megaman.
The Mobo and Brit-winning garage group - previously known as So Solid Crew - follow their former hits 21 Seconds and They Don't Know with new single Since You Went Away.
On the new line-up, which now includes Megaman, Lisa Maffia and MC Romeo, he said: "We're lots more creative. It's a changed industry, everything is online now - it's been challenging but interesting."
"So Solid is not just a band, it's also a brand name. We're business-oriented, we're entrepreneurs. We have lots of heads with a hunger for music. Lisa's got her fashion store, we've got a record label and we're producing too."
Megaman said they didn't want to come back unless they were ready.
"Everyone's been asking, so this is ideal. We've had a tune for a while, it's the right comeback beat," he said.
"It's been a nice journey, and we're getting to grips with it."
