Thank you for your continued support!

On May 20, 2022, our drummer Chris Efthemian passed away. It devestated the members of the band as well as his family and friends. Chris will never be able to be replaced. He was an intricate part of the band. He made us better musicians. We will all miss you Chris, until we meet again!
