We're A Rock/Punk/Pop Band from Southern California. We've been a band for 5 years now and we're still going at full force! We've put out a few cds and made a pretty good name for ourselves for the most part!!

You play Guitar in Forfit, what made you want to learn to play and what was the first song you learnt?
My Dad is an awesome musician and has been all his life, Him and my Mom got me into music from Day one, They got me my first drum set when I was 2 1/2. Played drums for 13 years and then started playing guitar and singing, which is when I decided I needed to be a Frontman haha! All in All, I come from Huge Musical family on both my dad and mom's side! The first song I learned on Guitar is "Ventrua Highway" by "America".

You're currently unsigned but have caught attention from some big names such as Drive Thru Records and John Feldmann (Goldfinger). Do you see yourself being signed soon?
I Really do have the greatest feelings about our band, and not a day goes by that I look down or doubt us! I know we have what it takes and When your in this music buisness, its all about time. We're not giving up till it happens, So I'd love to say I hope to see us Signed very soon!

You're currently busy writing and recording new tracks, so can we expect an album soon? If so, how will the UK fans be able to get hold of it?
