Well it’s been fun. We started this band as babies in highschool writing/recording songs in a garage and are ending it as “adults” playing and recording in a garage. It’s been an amazing 2 and a half years and it’s been amazing being in a band with best friends and siblings, we couldn’t have asked for more.
