What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What's your least favorite? Why?
Our favorite thing about being an Orlando band is that you don’t get a lot of drink tickets. That way you don’t get too messed up before you have to go on stage. Our least favorite thing is that they give you drink tickets at all. Its like, hello?? Are you trying to make us get wasted and do a bad job? SMDH

We are kicking Ben Roche out of the band!
