Something I realized once I started breaking my top 100 albums and EPs of 2020 list down into four posts is that each post became a micro-list of its own. For example, I wasn’t really thinking too hard about what album I was going to rank 26th when there were 100 albums. But when I split the list up suddenly being ranked 26th seemed really important as it became the last album a reader will see in this post. The reverse proved be true as well, ranking an album 75th where it’s going to be first album a reader sees when they click my post became important too.… Continued →

1. What prompted you guys to form? Was there something that you all share? How did that go down? Austin and myself (Andrew) have been doing music together for almost 8 years now, we formed with the other guys out of prior friendships and a shared love for music with a meaning, we all have a real passion for this. 2. What’s it like having grown from a small band to now being signed with a major label like Tooth and Nail? It’s still hard to believe honestly, we have looked up to tooth and nail and their bands since the beginning.… Continued →
