FAVORITE LYRIC: “Don’t waste your time, or time will waste you.” – Muse “Knights of Cydonia”

5 PEOPLE WE’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: The four members of our band and the person who is reading this.

FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Running into Dom Howard and Morgan Nicholls of Muse at Searsucker in Austin, Texas, before their ACL Festival performance that evening.

WE WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE… We’d been on a bit of a hiatus as far as recording new music. Clint (lead guitar) wrote the music, which had quite an uplifting feel to it, and the lyrics came naturally from Chris (lead vocals & guitar). The song pretty much wrote itself and came together nicely. This is a song we’re proud to call our own.
