What makes you different from other bands out there?

A lot of bands play music because it's a fun thing to do, but I honestly feel like we do this because we have to. Everyone one in this band depends heavily on music being an outlet and without it life wouldn't be as rewarding.

Have a CD out? If so how can we get it?

We are currently in the studio recording our debut E.P. and it'll be released in a couple of months. Until then you can listen to our music on our myspace of purevolume.

If you could give advice to a starting band or musician, what would you say?

All good things take time. Don't rush your product.

Bobby - Meeting new people, eating, sight seeing, playing for new people!
Anthony - Meeting people, food, sight seeing, food, and ummm.... food!
Eric - Meeting new people and getting a feel for the rest of the United States. Every place has its own atmosphere and it directly inspires the music that comes from that particular region, and it's nice to feel it first hand.
Marc - Eat at random restaurants!
Kevin - Play shows and meet new people.

Do you have any upcoming shows?

Quite a few. All of our shows are listed on our myspace.

What do you think about UFOs?

Scully and Mulder proved their existence pretty well, and Scully is WAY hot.
