Warm ups with our instruments/voices, some stretching and some of us take a shot to loosen up.

Overall.. The positive feedback and support we have received in the year we've played shows and recorded our EP.
If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?
Slipknot - incredibly huge audiences and get to share the stage with one of the greatest live bands ever.
Despised Icon - Incredible band that we would fit in with stylistically.
Every Time I Die - They just seem like they would be the most fun band to travel with.
Beneath The Massacre and Between The Buried And Me - Both bands just to be awe struck every night watching them play.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Big things to come. We're coming to take over. Thank you.
