where can we nor­mally find you play­ing?

We seem to fre­quent most big lo­cal Ade­laide venues such as Fowlers Live, Uni­Bar, Black Mar­ket, and Enigma.

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.
