We are in punch mode right now. Our main focus is to promote our new video and finish up our New 8 song EP.  We are also getting ready to plan and start working on a new music video. You can expect some surprises on the next one for sure. The bands biggest inspiration comes from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, and Foo Fighters. We feel that we have achieved a unique sound that our fans are responding really well to. Certainly performing “Pyromaniac” live is exciting and very impactful on the crowd. That makes everything worth the efforts. 


Music industry…
is interesting. As a band that has been together less than a year it is hard to really have a say in the matter. At our point in our career, our main goal is to get our music heard by as many people as possible. We did however find it funny that a friend of ours was able to “pirate” “Pyro”, which was some good irony. When it comes down to it, the music industry is strong and ever growing and we intend on growing with it.

Inspired by…
5 minutes alone with the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders would be nice. But in all honesty spending 5 minutes with Dave Grohl would be amazing. From Nirvana to the Foo Fighters he has remained one of the most rad gentlemen in rock and roll. Constantly showing talent and dedication he is truly an inspiration to any up and coming rock band or musician.

Pyro is a twisted love story of sorts. Through the body of the song there is clearly a protagonist that is desperately trying to impress someone. As the song progresses if you listen to the lyrics this woman that he is trying to impress is egging him on to give into being a pyromaniac and at the end of the song, he has. This is truly shown in the chorus with the line “well I’m a pyro, and you’re a maniac” or in line “I’ll burn it down for you”. We wanted to create something theatrical that would cause the listener to have an image in their head, almost as if they were watching something.


The EP…
We are all extremely passionate about music, writing, and of course preforming. Our EP was chance for us to show what we can do, our upcoming album is going to show the direction we are going. The songs are becoming more technical and as we develop as a band. A friend asked if we felt we had found our sound and we believe that with the music we are currently recording we have. The album is going to be a mix of 90’s grunge and alternative rock that will hopefully pull the listener in allowing each track to create a story.
