Describe your sound: it’s really hard for us to describe our sound because there’s so many different ways we could describe it. On our EP, there’s a sound for a different types of music interests, at our live shows, there’s even more variety. And once our full album is released, there will be something for everyone!
What’s the band’s origin story? We started playing together on the youth group band at our church, we all meshed together very well and started playing music outside of the church, we all took a break from from the band for about a year, and when we finally came back together and started a new band, we worked together even better.
Who are your influences?: Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Soundgarden, Neck Deep, Iron Maiden, Slayer. Hawthrone Heights.
Favorite Venue to Play: This is another tough question, but we can tell you this. We like playing everywhere! We love the different types of music scenes that each city has, we like playing larger venues, smaller venues, basements, balconies, backyards, tents, bars. We just love what we do and we love that someone always has a place we can do it and fans that can enjoy it with us!
Where did you record?/Who did you work with?/How was the experience? We worked with Ryan Kutz at Cherry Pit Studios in Menomonee Falls. The experience was great, it was a lot of fun working with a friend in Ryan, they really helped us through the process. We will be back there again to complete the full album.
Anything else the world should know about you? Listen to our EP, it’s very diverse, we think that there’s something for everyone to listen to on it, especially once the full album is out!
