How do you like being a band from CA, do you wish you could start your band in a different state?
The band actually started in Utah and it seemed to go nowhere fast, en till i restarted in Cali about 2005. But having it restart is Norwalk, Ca helped it a lot. The streets of Norwalk give us the sound we have...so to say
Do you have any upcoming shows?
yeah we have a lot coming up, we are actually touring in January too with a band from Utah called never say never. for all show info check out the my space
What inspires most of your lyrics?
a lot of the lyrics are about using your mind and not listen to what people tell you is right, we were all for with our own brains. So we try to push the idea as much as we can.
What is the best thing about music?
No matter where you are in life, living in the gutters, living in a huge house eating from garbage cans, What ever it is. When you are playing in a band or even by yourself you are in a different state of mind. You don't have to worry about outside life, you think in the now.
if any of that make sense..
What other instruments can (each person) play (other than the ones they currently play in the band)?
well every one sticks to the main instrument
every now and again though i do dabble at the piano.
What do you think about UFOs?
i think they are fake and .... who cares about them. apparently to many people
What religion are you guys and does it effect your music?
one thing about out band is we dont care about religion, politics and vegetarians(:
What do you guys do for work right now, other than playing music?
