Any big news to share?
We’ve been a band for 10 years! Our new album “Bone Up” is coming out soon!
1) What has been your most memorable show so far?
That one show where there was the bloody guy with a machete.
2) Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?
3) Which national band would you most like to share a bill with?
4) What description gets used for your band that you would most like to correct people on? Why?
“8-Bit”, because nothing we use is 8 bits.
5) What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What’s your least favorite?
We could maybe answer both with the same answer. It seems like the Orlando music scene will go from very exciting, busy, and fun, then crash into nothingness all of a sudden. Right now it’s picking up again, so we’re excited to start playing live shows again with our friends.
