Thus far the band has played one show as a whole band.

In terms of releases the band has released a handful of singles.

Most intriguing about this band is the way they are formed, showing the progress that the internet is bringing to the current scene and music industry as a whole, which makes you question, how local will a local scene stay if the internet is involved.

In terms of live shows the band has mostly played local, but there is one opening slot that gives the band bragging rights. Which is when they opened for “State Champs”

What I like about their sound is their energetic pop punk sound, which also gives me 2010 vibes but with some fresh takes added.
