We no longer live in a world where we care what people think. We live in a world where we care about what we think other people think. We manufacture environments of distraction that are designed to strip us of our individuality. Words like, “Freaks,” “Geeks,” “Forgotten” and “Musical Genre,” we once let proudly define us, now serve to only divide us into categories where we forget who we can allow ourselves to become when we know no one is watching. And this is why we make music. Not to escape from the reality of this world but to redefine it. With pride, we are nothing less than ourselves. To be anything else than that is cheap imitation. Our message is that you don’t have to trade your uniqueness for a sense of belonging. You belong right here. Come Join our Tribe. Our Tribe of Unique Individuals!
