"The name of the band comes from its members residing on both sides of the Atlantic, which these days is no barrier to working on musical ventures. This release features half a dozen tracks of heart-on-the-sleeve, melodic punk rock along the lines of A Vulture Wake and Samiam. I enjoy how the rhythm section drives the songs along, whilst the guitars and vocals allow the songs to soar, especially on “Trustworthy,” my favorite of the six tracks. I hope this trans-Atlantic musical venture offers up more like this in the future."
A transatlantic collaboration bridging the waters via intense blasts of post-punk exuberance.
The new six track EP, '3,482 Miles' was released on 9/9/22 via Engineer Records, Sell The Heart Records and Shield Recordings on gatefold transparent sea-glass vinyl, digipak hi-fi CD and across all digital channels.
This storming release is a love letter to the hardcore music scene.
Inspirations include all the greats, ranging from Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, and Descendents to Hot Water Music, Braid, The Promise Ring and Seaweed.
