You can stream and buy our new single, COLD SNAP, NOW!
Cold Snap will be appearing on our upcoming album (tape on Burger Records!), Top Down (Heater On), which will be released in late Summer/early Fall.
Not only is this an advance release of a track from the new album, BUT the single also includes two more never-before-heard songs that will appear no where other than on this single: Stay Frosty and Underwater Sweat (Live).
Just in time for TOUR!
And coming soon, a new MUSIC VIDEO!

Weird Dude Energy por vida!
