The band’s latest Blue In The Dark is available via Pure Noise now. Check out their latest self-titled single here.

They’re set to join Set It Off on the second leg of the Midnight tour next month. The band will also be hitting the Groezrock festival while in Europe. They’ll play among a two-day lineup consisting of Jawbreaker, Coheed & Cambria, Dropkick Murphys, Bowling For Soup, Sharptooth, The Word Alive and more.
