Describe your sound in five words:
Shred City Progressive Post Hardcore

Five questions:

What has been your most memorable show so far?
So What! Music Festival in Dallas, TX was an amazing experience to be able to play. A few of the members drove out the year before to see all of the incredible bands on the festival and it was awesome to be able to play this year.

Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?
This is a very hard question because we have so many amazing local bands who are all our friends, but recently we've been playing a lot of Florida shows with The Year I Disappear, and those guys are good musicians and some of the coolest dudes. Special shout out to our boys in Hungover as well. When Capstan started they were one of the first bands who befriended us and they are still going hard.

What description gets used for your band that you would most
like to correct people on? Why?
The sound of the band has changed quite a bit since our first release and we haven't seen ourselves as just a "pop punk" band for some time now. Many people only list us in that category but we are continuing to push the envelope with our style of music.

What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What's your least favorite? Why?
Favorite Thing: Being a part of the culture of such an amazing and vibrant community. Orlando's culture is defined by supporting the arts, small businesses, and the LGBTQ community. It is an honor to be a part of that fabric.

Least Favorite Thing: We are too far from the beach.
