Here’s what else Mike Pinto had told The Pier about the upcoming tour..
“This summer tour is going to be a showcase of the new songs that will be released on our new EP, and future recordings in the next year. Our band loves touring, so we can’t wait to see some old friends, party our asses off, and jam with bands like Fayuca, the Northwest Sons, and Groovestain. To be completely objective, our fans are the best in the U.S. haha, so we can’t wait to see them all and break out the new songs! Hope to see everyone at our shows!”
