Self-produced, the EP was engineered and mixed by Joe Reineke at Orbit Audio (Schoolyard Heroes, The Lonely H). Additional recording/engineering was done by Justin Armstrong at Robert Lang Studios (Blood Brothers). The band has lined up noteworthy gigs in support of the release at The Sunset Tavern, The High Dive and the LAB performance space at the Seattle Drum School. Support for the release: * September 23rd (CD Release Show) at The Sunset Tavern * October 7th All Ages Show at the L.A.B * October 12th w/Medications and Patrol, The Crocodile HISTORY: In 2003 Nick, Jonny and Ryan decided they wanted to take their regular jam sessions to the next level. Ben was invited in to play bass and things started to click. The band decided it was time to find a vocalist and within weeks, Maureen was added to the line up. The bands goals are modest but well defined. They've been fortunate and found great opportunities to play shows at some of the best venues in and out of town. Playing live shows are the blood and guts of what makes this band tick. Promotional cuts from the EP have been submitted to several booking agents, zines and indie radio stations across the US.
