The Story So Far

Place you’d most like to tour?

“Find what you love & let it kill you.”

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

There’s a couple of songs on this record that ARE older and I wrote for myself during my teenage years and they sort of acted as letters/songs as the kid I’ve been while growing up.

See us live at?

Going on tour across the states with Can’t Swim, Homesafe & Save Face currently! Hit up a date if it’s near your city.

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

Some things about it were better I’d agree but some elements about New Age music is great too.

Currently don’t have any unusual merch were selling but I always thought it would be sweet to build something handmade band related and sell them. Maybe one day.

We’d love to do acoustic versions soon of our singles, or even if someone did remixes of our stuff ahaha.

Everything to be quite honest. If you’re reading this and support us in anyway then just know we’re here because of all of you. Thank you.

Cody keeps breaking his tubes lately, does that count? Lol

Probably mine ha.
