C4YS backUltimately, he could not give up on the cookies. Two of these tracks made it onto the DCB's first full-length album, Escape to Anyville, while the other two stayed with the name.
C4YS spineThe name "Candy 4 Your Soul?" is a quirky reference to a fictional scenario where bad creatures are asking if you would accept candy in exchange for your soul. The idea is that the human race is too quick to throw their faith out the window when temptation is present.
