Hilariously unaware hardcore buffoons that can't see that they're the new scene kids are stoked.

"Too bad it wasn't the Mighty Ducks themed hardcore band from Virginia."

100% truth. Thought I was the only person that always thinks of the VA band when I see these guys.

From chicago. Actually live 3 blocks from bassist (who is actually a drummer). Was very good friends with his older brother. That being said, never heard them other than him playing bass poorly. Should have stuck with drums, he was a killer drummer. For Chicago METQL, check out my buds in warforged and Roman ring. Only decent bands to come outta Chicago.

^ Yea? I heard that the Bloods&Crypts are pretty good from chicago.
