Happy April! Here is some emotional punk that was put out this past January. I like their vocalist a bit, at times he sounds a lot like the guy from Local Natives, but he has an edginess that Local Natives doesn't have. Whoever is from Michigan, these guys will be playing at the Metal Frat with CSTVT and Make Do And Mend. That's going to be a busy night. Going to try to catch Bars of Gold (ex. Bear vs. Shark), Fordirelifesake and maybe some of Suicide Machines and then speed out to Ann Arbor for that CSTVT show featuring these guys and a bunch of other bands.
