The original members of the 1990's rock band are excited to return to what we love 21 years later!
For 4 years we enjoyed traveling the country together opening for numerous acts such as Great White, Warrant, Quiet Riot, Triumph, Joey Ramone, and more! Locally we like to call Detroit clubs such as Harpos, Token Lounge, I-Rock, Studio Lounge our home away from home where we were proud to share the stage with many of Detroit's favorite bands too, which included Heaven's Wish, Illegal, Fair Game, Raggedy Ann, Damsel, Something Wild, Trash Brats , Eleventh Hour and so many more. We also had air play on WRIF, Z-ROCK and a couple college stations as well as guest D.J's on numerous local and non local metal shows.
We have 2 CD's of our original music available, and we are working on a brand new CD to be released in 2019.
