The Evolution Revolutionaries
August 26, 2018
We are thrilled to announce that we have created a comic book series to go along with our forthcoming LP, Evolution Revolutionaries.
We stepped back and asked ourselves, "What are our songs about? What message are we attempting to promote?" Our songs have always been about inspiring others to do great things, love one another, better ourselves, and be the change you want to see. Being avid comic readers ourselves, one day it just hit us: Our music has the same ideals as comic books.
Written by Shannon Brewer with art by Brett Dungan, Evolution Revolutionaries is a 12-issue comic series about the band Freerunner who all acquire super powers through a strange incident. The 12 issues directly correspond with the 12 songs of the forthcoming Evolution Revolutionaries LP, and each comic book will include a digital download of one song. Collect all 12 to get the full story and the full album.
The Evolution Revolutionaries comic is set to launch in Fall 2018. Follow us on Facebook for details and progress!

A Day In The Sun
January 1, 2018
We kicked off 2018 by (accidentally) recording at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN! Sun Studio is considered the "birthplace of Rock n Roll," recording Elvis' big hits, Johnny Cash ("I Walk The Line), Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis ("Great Balls of Fire"), Carl Perkins ("Blue Suede Shoes"), as well as U2, Bob Dylan, B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, and tons more.
We stumbled in as superfan-tourists and were asked if we'd like to record, so we ended up cutting a 5-track acoustic EP featuring songs off this new album Evolution Revolutionaries, as well as becoming studio musicians for an engagement party who were recording a version of "Love Me Do." What an amazing experience! Thanks to Ples and Daniel at Sun for your hard work and hospitality!
