The guys are also performing with Arkells and The Reason in Ottawa at HOPE Volleyball Summerfest on July 13th.
Our guitar player and dear friend Jay Smith passed away yesterday morning in Edmonton. As you can all imagine, we are completely devastated. However, in our heart of hearts we know that we need to Play on. Jay’s family as well as the band know he would have wanted it that way. All the proceeds from the remaining shows will be put into a trust for his two beautiful children. Please click here if you would like to make a donation.
Jay’s wit, charm, and unparalleled love of music will never be forgotten. He was our brother and he will live in our hearts and song forever.
We are thrilled to share the new video for “Indio” with you all. It was shot in Costa Rica by Michael Maxxis:
