It is Time!
It is time...time for some new stuff. A couple of weeks ago we excitedly began the writing process anew. We still plan to do some live gigs in the coming months, but will be devoting more of that precious resource--time--to writing again. We have revived the SoMo blog that we used when documenting the making of "Breaking Silence," so feel free to follow along. And thanks, as always, for all of the awesome support!
 
 
Show Added: Ionia Fairgrounds -- Aug 20 Bad Azz Truck Expo

We will be splitting a 3-hour show at the Ionia Fairgrounds with our friends from Hangnail, and we hope to see you there. Hangnail is scheduled to go on at 8 and we are scheduled to follow them at 9:30.

    • "...an exercise in meticulously crafted sonic architecture"
    • "...careful songcraft, and shifting musical landscape, to hold your attention"
    • "...intuitively tight bass-and-drums rhythm section"
    • "...burning power chords ... better than most garden-variety shredheads"
