ABOUT

Established Portland area melodic hardcore punk band looking new members. We’re a Guitarist, Bassist, and Vocalist in our mid to late 30’s With at least 15 to 20 years each of experience playing shows, writing music and touring.
We’ve opened for such bands as Stung Out, Good Riddance, Swing’n Utters, Stiff Little Fingers, DFL, MDC, H2O, Clowns, Off With Their Heads, A Wilhelm Scream, Get Dead and Great Collapse just to name a few, that being said we don’t have big heads or rock star attitudes and neither should you. We’re down to earth guys looking for someone that is reliable, committed and interested in writing great music, recording, playing good shows and some touring. We have one album released, are finishing mastering on a 2nd to be released this summer and are currently working on writing a 3rd, that’s where you come in.
We’re looking for a drummer and guitarist that are serious and passionate about creating great thought provoking music, are dedicated to keeping up their chops at band practice and on their own time and available at least 1 to 2 times a week to get together to write, record and rehearse.
Specifically we need someone that is interested in contributing to the process and collaborating as well as being a chill easy going bandmate. We have a recording studio in our guitar players house that we use to do preproduction recording for new material as well as a separate 24 hour secure practice room with a pro JBL PA system to work out songs for live performances. While we do have an awesome 15 passenger tour van, you must also have your own vehicle for getting to practices and transporting your gear and such as well as a steady job or a stable occupation to support yourself, Preferably during the day since most rehearsals and shows we book are in the evening or at night. If you live in or around the Portland Metro area that would also be a plus.
please take a sec to check out the songs we have featured on our profile. The first two of the songs will be included on our up coming release due out this summer of 2020 so it’ll give you a good sense of what we’re going for style wise. the other two songs are from our debut album Armsreach. If you like it we look forward to hearing from you. If you do reply and don’t hear back from us right away it means we didn’t get it so try contacting us at
