About:

Long Island melodic hardcore band who played first show in April 2006. The five–piece released a 2–song demo preview shortly after, followed it up with the official 4–song demo shortly after that, then released their proper debut, the I Wouldn't Trade That for Anything EP in November on local label Iron Pier. Has often drawn comparisons to Lifetime, Saves the Day, and Braid.
