ABOUT

Our 3rd LP is about to drop, and so are we. We've been at this a long time,So long in fact that Bandmix didn't even have our number of years together as a band as an option (they rounded up to 20! WTF!?) Anyway, I'm 36 and write the majority of the music but I must be more like 26 because all my friends are 25 years old. Just saying, if you'e young, don't think we're lame embarrassing has-beens or something. This sh*t is just getting GOOD.
