SONG THAT BEST REPRESENTS YOUR BAND (and why): I think our song Constellation has a good mix of a lot of the elements that make up our band. It has a fun hefty guitar riff that muscles it’s way through the song, a straight up pop style hook in the chorus, and a looped ending that basically turns into a drum solo, haha.
NUMBER OF DMF APPEARANCES (and years): I believe we have been lucky enough to play DMF the last four years, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006. It’s always a great time not only performing, but seeing a lot of friends out and about.
LATEST NEWS (what’s up?): We spent the largest part of the Summer on an seven week tour through the States. It’s been a very rewarding year and we’ve been having a lot of fun. We’ll take a short brake in November while both of us head to Europe with Hawthorne Heights. We will be finishing out the year with a run of dates through the Midwest in December, leading up to our annual HoliDayton show at the end of the year.
PLANS FOR 2011: We’re really looking forward to recording a new album early on in the new year.
