Describe your sound in five words:
Like sucking on a brick.

Five questions:

What has been your most memorable show so far?
All of the dates are extremely blurred together, we did an East Coast run with Unwritten Law & Fenix TX. Ugh... we still have a hangover a year or two later.

Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?
All of the bands. Toooo many bands and good friends around here to pick one.

What description gets used for your band that you would most
like to correct people on? Why?
ummmm… Easy Core. WTF

What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What's your least favorite? Why?
There are a ton of really great punk bands coming up around here currently and that is probably my favorite thing. That being said, my least favorite thing has been being the sole punk band on many bills around here for a while…

Any big news to share?
New record that we spent almost 3 years making is finally done. I don’t think we have ever worked harder on a record then we did on this one. Our buddy Andrew Wade, who did our EP, produced/mixed/mastered the record. The record is an angry rant about an awful couple years that a good friend of ours went through. We can’t wait to finally get this thing out. It will be out in Sept via Smartpunk.
