When did the band get together, and how?
We have been together for approximately six years. We met years ago when we (Danny, Chris & Aaron) left our old guitarist from our former band Guilt Free Aggression. We spent awhile looking for a new and improved member that would follow us as we progressed and changed everything. Chris found Mikey finally at their former job and brought him to a tryout where Aaron and Danny thought he was just a darn metal head. Needless to say he ended being our fourth and we have been together since.
How would you describe your music to someone?
Our music is the most original,weird,catchy stuff in el paso we think. We have pushed ourselves to be different but powerfullwhich for the most part alot of people take a little while to grasp what,how and why we do.
Who are some of the bands that influence your music?
System of a Down, Coheed and Cambria, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Steve Vai, Pearl Jam, Godsmack, all of it pretty much!
What is your most memorable gig so far?
Locofest 2009 I believe with Theory of a Deadman. We had the 4:30 slot on the mainstage and we just rocked it. I remember we all of us were so nervous but once we got on stage we were set free and we'll never forget how we felt as a team and how all the people treated us like we were huge.
Are you currently signed to any kind of label or management?
We were signed with TMG but no longer are and are currently are looking for new improved management.
