1. How you guys doin? How's the vocalist search going?

We are all doing fine. The search is going good, we found a vocalist that is dedicated and has potential.

2. How did the band come about and form?

The band started in 06' as a death metal band... throughout the years members' came in and out until me and Chris and Carl decided to play something different. We just played the style we had been talking about and with the help of our old vocalist Adriane we recorded 3 songs and really liked how it came out instrumentally. Once Carl left the band we got Carlos to be our other guitarist. We had gone through a million singers haha until we got our new vocalist (metal)mike.

3. You guys working on any new material? Is there a release date in the near future for a possible EP?

We are recording a full e.p on the 6th and 7th.
Packed with exclusive unheard shit.

4. You're from Texas which has always been a well known haven for metal and rock music, how is the scene like down there recently?

The scence down here in San Antonio is great alot of kids support local bands that they like but if your a band that doesn't entertain them they will not support you.

5. If you could tour with three bands who would they be?

I would tour with Misery Signals which is the greatest band of all time, Refused because i've been listening to them since I was a in middle school. I would also tour with Love is Red cause they are just amazing.
