Hometown: Cleveland, MS (USA)


"We believe we are just a punk band that is not musically, emotionally, or mentally dead. We could be hardcore but we aren't afraid to carry melody in our vocals.

(Everyone is powerful)"

Editors' Picks: Satori / Saw Wheel
Chris: I love me some good ska, but my definition of it tends to vary.
