Thanks brooklyn, you fucking rule. Thanks to and Saint Vitus Bar for having us!

If you were at Saint Vitus Bar last night, then you know that we are embarking on a new creative and sonic chapter starting this year. It starts with welcoming a new member into the fold, the incredibly talented Jason Sherman (Torrential Downpour) on vocals/synth/noise. He adds a new dimension to our tunes and we are really excited to share what we’ve been working on. You heard some new tunes last night, here’s a taste courtesy of

Tour with Lazer/Wulf this August, more shows coming this fall!

This August we hit the road once again for a run of shows with the mighty Lazer/Wulf, culminating with a set Sunday at RPM Fest!


If you know who we are, then we don’t need to tell you who Lazer/Wulf is. If you somehow missed that train, for shame! But here’s your chance. Sometimes, a special bond is formed between similarly disturbed individuals, like the Notebook, but with chainsaws. and guitars. We had been following their music before sharing a stage together last year, and to say this band rules is an understatement. This will be a week of strange instrumental magic. Can’t wait to see all your faces!
