who/what is your inspiration to play music ?
We were all able to collectively agree that Blink-182 was a main inspiration. Also, Godsmack, Disturbed, Creed and Seether rank up there pretty high…

most memorable show ?
It’d have to be a tie between our CD release show back in June of last year, or Milford, CT back in December. Both memorable, for different reasons. Good reasons.

Nothing beats the love we get in our hometown of Richmond, VA. Aside from that, Maryland gave us a pretty warm welcome our first time there so props to them on that.

how can fans contact you ?
Anyone can contact us however they would like! Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram. Don’t be shy!

if you could have one super power, what would it be & why ?
Ben: Have the ability to go supersyan.
Nick: Become a baby at any time I choose

dream tour ?
It would be pretty cool to tour with some of our favorite acts such as Blink-182, The Wonder Years, Fall Out Boy and The Story So Far

lastly, what do you have to say to your fans ?
We would just like to say thank you to everyone who has supported us in anyway! It means everything to us. Don’t just be a friend, say hi and become a friend. We love you!
