Describe your sound:

“union of muscle and melody”  – Jim Abbott

Five Questions:

1) What has been your most memorable show so far?

The first time we played at the Closet in Sarasota was a party and a half. Those folks know how to bring the noise. The release show for Leftover Knowledge at Will’s was fun times, playing with our buds the in The Goodrub and 20WT. Opening for Born Ruffians at Backbooth was “a whole tubfull of crazy”. Three way tie.

2) Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?

Stimulus Nimbus, possibly some of the most supportive dudes we’ve met.

We miss playing with The GoodRub and JunkieRush!

3) What description gets used for your band that you would most like to correct people on? Why?

To be honest, we’ve heard a lot of descriptions, but we’ve never turned our noses up at any of them. We like it when people can pick out details of our style, because that gives us a better idea of how to describe our sound to others, since we’re not too good at that!

4) What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What’s your least favorite?

There are a lot of bands here. A lot of cliques in the music scene. It’s a challenge to make a name for yourself, but that makes it noticeable when a band is making an impact. A lot of shows any given night, which is a good thing so you have a lot of options, but bad when you have to pass on some shows for others.

5) Any big news to share?

Proud to be a part of the 2nd Annual Antiwarpt Music Festival in St. Pete this year! Some awesome local and national acts on the bill, should be a great time. We are about to start shooting a music video for our song, “All In Your Head” this summer, and we are going to start working on a new record in the fall. Keep an eye out for some exciting stuff!
