tell us about your best show.
In November 2013 we supported The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus at a sell-out show. We all got super drunk, had a band cuddle and then rocked out to a packed UniBar crowd. During load out Jimmy surfed his speaker cabinet down some stairs. From what I remember, it was our biggest show yet and we definitely made a whole heap of new fans.
tell us about your worst show.
That’d be hard to pick because even the quiet ones turn into big nights out. Maybe when we were put on with a bunch of metal bands and a not-sofriendly sound engineer cut Jake’s bass out of the mix, or one show our lead guitarist got ridiculously sick and we had to play without him. Even though we didn’t sound as awesome as we usually do, we still dived off the stage, partied hard, and put on a super energetic show.
tell us your three favourite bands.
Kid Liberty, Me Vs Hero and Every Time I Die.
tell us about your latest release.
We recently put out an acoustic split-EP with our good friends in Doc Oc, which is available to be streamed on YouTube, Spotify or purchase from our Bandcamp and iTunes. Even though we’re all about having a good time usually, it’ll definitely hit you right in the feels.
