Hot and sweaty lol, we just moved in a great rehearsal studio in the city of Boston, and its really fun, were trying out new songs!

The biggest challenge has always been maintinaing momentum. Going through lineup changes, and to constantly create and be innovative with our sound.

It's always been a goal for us to play the downstairs Palladium in Worcester MA, our first show in 2010 was upstairs, so hopefully soon!
