One of UNFD‘s new signings has joined the fun with our Year in Review series! If you missed it, LIMBS dropped their new EP, which set them up as a band to watch going into 2021 (our review here).

LAST GIG YOU PLAYED BEFORE COVID?
Last gig was back in January at The Masquerade (Heaven) in Atlanta, Georgia with Motionless in White, Stick to Your Guns and Dead American.
HOW DID COVID AFFECT YOU/YOUR BAND?
As a band, the quarantine completely crippled our touring plans from the foreseeable future. We released a new EP this year, and due to Covid-19, the tracking process was a lot different than any release we’ve recorded prior – we wrote and tracked it all across multiple parts of the country.
As an individual, the quarantine has definitely tested my sanity and patience a little bit. I’ve tried my best to stay busy while being confined. At times, it’s been difficult; just ready to get back to regular life, as is everyone else.
BIGGEST THING YOU LEARNED ABOUT YOURSELF IN 2020?
It’s never too late to develop new skills. Thanks to this quarantine, I’m now building foundations for skillsets that, a year ago, I never would’ve thought I’d be developing.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO IN 2021?
Hopefully international travel! Obviously staying away from people until this virus is contained is paramount, but I cannot wait to be able to travel and see the world again.
