When did you guys start?
Early winter of 2008 is when we first got together as a four piece; we went on to add Nick on keys and backing vocals in winter of 2009.
Where are you guys from?
Vinny our drummer grew up in New Jersey, Chris our lead guitarist is originally from Arizona, the rest of us are from around the Philadelphia area.
How did you meet each other?
We all met through separate bands we played in throughout the Philadelphia area in one way or another and starting jamming with each other.
What kind of music most influences the band?
The biggest music influences over the band as a whole are classic rock and old indie rock. Throw a lot of blues/jazz in there as well and you have where most of us got our musical roots.
What music could you not breathe without?
This is way different for everyone in the band, however some bands that we all gravitate towards and enjoy are: Deftones, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Superchunk, Nirvana, Grateful Dead, Alice in Chains, Metallica, Pink Floyd
What is the most embarrassing song you like right now?
We all enjoyed “Bad Romance” enough to cover it for our lovely drummer’s wife Isi, embarrassing for a rock band, but we gave it some punk and heavy to make it feel just right!
What makes you different than other bands?
Our strong desire to do things on our own and find our own way, and while playing for our friends is very important to us, and help from people we trust is super important, at the end of the day it is all about our love for music and a positive message behind it.
What category would you place your music?
Alternative Rock (Independent)
What other bands were you guys in before this one?
Losing Sleep, Etheracide, ScoreFour, Alien Architect, many others throughout the years.
If you could meet yourself as a 10 year old, what would you say to him?
Start learning music as early as possible, time only makes things better!
Anything you would like to say to anyone reading this interview?
Thank you for your time and any support of what we do, it means the world to us and we hope to meet you at a show very soon, meeting new people and making new friends through music is amazing to us and we hope you'll be a part of it with us!
