Where can we nor­mally find you play­ing?

We usu­ally play in Ade­laide at a placed called Fowlers Live.

Tell us about your best show.

We sup­ported All Time Low in Ade­laide the last time they came to Aus­tralia. The crowd was in­sane and the whole vibe was amaz­ing.

Tell us about your worst show.

When we first started the band we played out on this pad­dock out in the mid­dle of nowhere called Freel­ing. We were set up on the back of a truck and played to a whole bunch of bikies. We made so many mis­takes, the whole 30 min­utes was cringe­wor­thy! They didn’t dance around much.

Tell us your three favourite bands.

That’s so hard! We’ve man­aged to nar­row it down to Fall Out Boy, AC/DC and A Day To Re­mem­ber.

Tell us about your lat­est re­lease.

We just re­leased our de­but EP ti­tled In Per­spec­tive. There are seven punchy, high-en­ergy songs on the EP about friend­ships, heart­break and be­ing in a band. There’s some­thing on there for ev­ery­one.

Slayer or Me­tal­lica?

Me­tal­lica!
