To date the group has three recordings under their belt (2012’s Burning Bridges To Nowhere, 2009’s At The Bottom and 2006’s Glass Barricade and this new song demonstrates a group who only improve with time. Check out “Failure II” now!

Recently the band returned from a short break wherein they made some line-up and sonic changes. Heavier than they’ve ever sounded, the band is going to continue to do what they do best… tear shit up! “The break has definitely had a positive influence on us as a band,” says guitarist and original founding member Bo Louther. “It has allowed us to step back and really just make music purely because we love it. Also, with a new vocalist comes a whole new dynamic [and] we’re open to experimenting a bit more.”
