The First Step is headed west. The band will be playing a string of dates with labelmates Go It Alone in February and playing the Rivalry Records showcase in Petaluma, CA.

The band signed with Rivalry Records late last year and is expecting an April release date for their upcoming LP What We Know, which features Walter Schriefels of Gorilla Biscuits doing production.
