Favourite Moment Your Band Had in 2017

“Probably loading in to the first show of the Stone Sour tour and all of us dropped nuts to how big an empty festival hall really is, also Corey Taylor coming into our green room to introduce himself. Such a surreal moment”  📷: @jamesclarke.__

Best Show Your Band Played in 2017

“It would be a solid tie between Hordern Pavilion or the Sold Out Eaton’s Hill Hotel show on the Stone Sour tour.”


What Are Most Looking Forward to in 2018?

“Hopefully playing some more big rooms and starting the whole writing game again”
