That’s about the extent of any info about this three piece other than they include members of the bands The Jitz, Traffic Death, and The band Rob Ogg, and have several upper Midwest shows running through July 2017. This being the first offering from, and released by Sump Pump Records.  It contains four tracks totaling 6+ minutes of pure punk rage including a ‘sliced and diced to perfection‘ cover of 80’s legend Greg Khin’s track ‘The Breakup Song’ that is ‘instant movement‘ for the entire 1:42 as you scream along with these guys.

The other three original tracks are full-on sneer inducing pure punk, each a quick burst of machine gun drum-lines, road-rage spewing and an almost love song to start things off. This is one of those maxi-singles that leaves one question in your mouth… “Where the fuck is the REST??” No real “New ground” broken other than the brilliant reworking of  Khin cover, but it hits hard from beginning to end and will force you to hear it over and over… get it now, shove it down the throats of your closest friends and all of their enemies too, support them live and keep it LOUD!!
