What’s your hometown (or what are your hometowns)?
The concrete jungle where dreams are made of…but not the city part. We are from Queens. 718 represent!!
How did the band come together? How long has it been?
We formed in the summer of 2009; a rag-tag team of mercenaries meticulously trained in the art of rock. On a more serious note, we were just a bunch of middle school friends and one other dude making music. We hated each other at one point for pretty much no reason which is the truly hilarious part considering we’re inseparable now. Just goes to show you never know. It will be six years this summer. Wouldn’t trade a minute of those years for anything.
How have you grown since you started?
Well, we’ve all grown in size in various ways. But musically, we’ve all found new influences and started taking different approaches toward song writing. We’ve also all grown as people. We started looking and worrying about more meaningful things other than the ladies… haha. Realizing we didn’t have the brightest futures was a harrowing experience but it also inspired us to write (at least what we think to be) some of the best music of our young lives thus far. In the simplest terms, we’ve grown up a bit.
What sets you apart from other bands?
What makes us different from other bands is the fact that we’re all just normal guys. We all work full time jobs and support our music. Everything we have we worked hard for and musically, we think that shows on our records. We’re also a group of twelve cats guised as humans with the aid of trench coats. What also sets us apart is that we don’t care about genre or the box people want to put us in. We’ve always followed the belief that we’re just going to make what we like, no matter what it sounds like.
