Launching their first independent LP thanks to an avid fanbase and successful Kickstarter campaign, the former Facedown Records rock outfit publishes a transparent rock journal of heartache-driven doubts, life queries, and vulnerable confessions. Written in the Catskill Mountains and recorded with Mat Malpass (Copeland, Manchester Orchestra) in Atlanta, the Poughkeepsie, New York natives use their wide musical influences to confront darkness with a fiery amalgamation of melodic modern-southern-punk rock—easily justifying their elite placement in AbsolutePunk's Absolute 100 and growing impact among rock fans seeking raw musical and lyrical substance.
