Our first EP. We're proud of each and every one of these songs. We hope you love them as much as we do. We consider playing it through laptop speakers an insult. Proper speakers or headphones mandatory. Play it loud.
This EP didn't cost us any physical money to make, but it cost us time, hours of sleep, and the good moods of our family members who had to drive us to and from the studio at ridiculous hours. We're offering it for free, but if you'd like to donate any money we can't express how much it would be appreciated and solemnly swear that all money made will go straight back into the band. Whether you donate or not, thanks so much for your support. We do this for you.
