At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: Tectonics, our latest EP, was recorded in Kensington, Maryland. We are in working hard on a new full-length record, which was also tracked in Kensington, and will be released in 2017. The band started in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, while Nathan was in college there. We have played most venues in DC, and are interested in growing the scene and appreciate what this show is doing to highlight it.
