We are a young, energetic, up and coming rock band out of Bowmanville, Ontario. Members Brandon Hastings, Braedon Jeffery, and Dylan Porter have been writing and performing together for 5 years and have succsfully completed various local competitions with great success. We have recently been given the oppportunity to open for Bleeker, Pop Evil, The Lazys and Age of Electric in Oshawa and are thrilled to entertain any audience with our high energy, high power performance. Forming in 2012 as a 4-piece with a passion to play hard driven rock n roll, we immediately started writing our own songs with inspirations coming from the likes of mordern acts Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, and Bleeker Ridge and classic bands Led Zepplin, Metallica, and The Ramones. We used those influences mold our sound and stand out among others. Within our first year as a band we won 2 local competitions and placed 3rd in an Ontario wide Battle of the Bands and began to gain a following by playing in different locations across Ontario. Throughout 2013 we played several local shows and continued writing with intentions to record and release and 5-6 song EP. In 2014 things really slowed down due to scheduling issues within the band and our hopes to get an EP out that year went out the window. Things started to pick back up in 2015 but there were still too many scheduling issues holding us back from what we wanted to be doing. In late 2015 we parted ways with our guitarist and began to search for a replacement. With no luck, we decided it's best to continue on as a 3-piece and really push ourselves and our talents as far as we can. Throught 2016 we played more shows and wrote more songs than we had collectively from 2012-2015. By the end of 2016 we had written, recorded, and released our debut 6-song EP and been given the privellege to open for the likes of Bleeker, Pop Evil, and The Lazys and were feautred on 94.9 The Rock's Generation Next hosted by Brian Moncarz.
