We are so so excited to share our brand new full-length album with all of you! When this band restarted in 2016, and our new lineup solidified, it evolved into a completely different thing. Our variety of musical backgrounds including indie, metal, jazz, and of course SKA all mesh together and shine here, and we feel that this album is the clearest example of who we are as a band. We love how these songs turned out, and we can’t wait to share it WITH YOU!
