Getting Creative 

On October 24th we played our 25th show of the year in Iowa City at The Blue Moose Tap House.  It was a fun road trip and a great way to end our 2014 touring schedule. We are spending November and December recording a video, writing new songs, deciding on a Producer and eventually getting into the studio to properly lay down the new tracks.  2014 was busy and fast paced for us, writing, recording, releasing and touring the Social EP was an insane and fantastic experience.  The new songs we have already written for the next Summit release continue to expand our sonic pallet and we are just scratching the surface.  We are going to have so many songs to choose from that the new CD promises to be dynamic.  It's going to be a great winter while we hunker down and make magic.  Stay tuned.

SOCIAL our new EP 

Our new EP "SOCIAL" is now available on Itunes, Amazon & CDBaby for download. Physical CD's will be available for purchase at all our shows.
