It’s been a while …

Sept 29, 2015

Hello Everyone: It’s been a while since we updated this page.  We have all been busy doing other projects over the last few years, but the good news is that we have an iPhone full of heavy jams and are looking at writing some new songs in the near future.  With any luck we should have a new record in the new year and hopefully should be back out on the road sometime in 2016.

We are REALLY looking forward to doing some recording with our new drummer Trinidad Leal as he is a mofo on the skins.

Looking forward to seeing y’all soon

Don’t bother getting a coffee Saturday morning Austin, cause you ain’t gonna need it.

Bringing their face-exploding tunes to the “best damned car show in America,” Grady hits the stage at The 13th Annual Lonestar Round Up in Austin Texas at 11am on Saturday April 5th.

Sounds like a party to me.
