We'll have spent this entire summer rocking stages in Europe so it will be great to get back to the good ole USA, to get down & dirty in the clubs with our favorite mutants from Antarctica. These gigs are not to be missed!"

Says frontman Foresta on the band, "We formed last winter after talks about doing a band together for a really long time. All four guys had a bunch of down time, so we just wrote a shit load of songs. I enjoy writing with these guys because not only can we write song about some ridiculous topics, but there's also more room to write about more serious and personal opinions in there as well." He continues, "This record has a lot of heart. It's a great release for me mentally."
