The band have become a mainstay of the US indie-punk scene in the last decade. Their three albums, released through Tiny Engines, show a band that refuse to slow down or stop moving forward.

They’ve shared the stage with the likes of Violent Soho. The Smith Street Band, Beach Slang, PUP, Sorority Noise and more. The band have made their name with an impassioned live show, sharp hooks, and Stern’s nostalgia-soaked reflective lyricism.

Frontman Maxwell Stern has also announced a series of solo dates on the East Coast of Australia. He plays a free show at The Hamilton Station Hotel on Thursday, March 1st with Pinch Hitter, Spencer Scott, and Christabelle Blue.
