After winning Vassar College’s Battle of the Bands, the band flew to Los Angeles to cut their debut record in 7 days in guitarist Jackson Lewis’s basement. Following a sparsely attended but raucous set at the Peppermint Club in which glassware literally shattered due to the noise level, actor Gary Oldman agreed to lend his voice to the album’s opening track. “Next Time Read the Fine Print” was self-released in October 2017, and became a surprise DIY sleeper hit on the college radio circuit.
Their sophomore effort ‘Squeeze’ was self-released in November 2018 and the band once again became a college radio hit, this time peaking at #3, a rare feat for a self-release by an independent college band.
In the spring of 2019 the band embarked on their disastrous second national tour which covered nearly 7,000 miles in 14 days, including a pit stop at SXSW. Unable to secure a space for a possible final show, the band began exploring other options, eventually deciding upon a squash court on campus. Inspired by the reverberant acoustics, the band decided to sneakily record their upcoming third album, ‘Good Kids Make Bad Apples’, there.
