Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, Alt-J, pretty much any band still making rock music currently.

Green Day was a big one for all of us, but we all grew up on classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Who, RUSH, etc.

We all do things differently, you usually can find Deric and Dylan sitting down tuning or just trying to relax before the show and Izzy is all over the place. (Laughs)

We opened up for the infamous rapper Afroman a few months back and that was extremely fun. We’ve also played sold out shows at a lot of venues around Saint Louis such as Cicero’s.

We’d love to tour with Real Friends. Not really sure why, but hanging with Dan sounds dope.
