Its our favorite time of the year once again! The tradition continues for the 13th year in a row. This has been a very busy year for us, we released a new single and B-side, returned to the west coast and forged new ground in the midwest and east. Most of all though we have been busy musically playing with our new(ish) man behind the kit Quinn Blandford and once again redefining and refining the music into what we feel is the most powerful yet. We are very excited about the direction the music has taken in the past year plus and we can’t wait to bring the new rock and ruckus to our hometown crew and families December 27th!
Its been almost a year since we last were in California and look forward to returning for some even bigger and badder shows! California love continues and we can’t thank you enough. We will be returning to LA and San Diego and making our first stop up to wine country in Santa Rosa!
We are excited to hit the road this summer in support of a string of singles we will be dropping in preparation for full EP this Fall. All the details your heart can desire are available over on the tour dates tab. Can’t wait to see ya out there team!
