Their EP Everything but today came in 2013 and was followed with their debut album MMXV in 2015. In their latest song “Broken Strings,” the track highlights the bands ability to combine booming guitars and great melodies, along with a catchy chorus.

“Broken Strings” has been featured on the “New Rock Show” on Planet Rock, Total rock, and Kerrang! radio just to name a few. And touring doesn’t stop yet, the band will be continuing to play at venues in the UK and Ireland throughout the rest of the year. Dates for these shows will be announced on their website and on social media.

Written by Melanie Gomez

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
