Asking For A Friend

by Solitary Set

We're Solitary Set from Baltimore, MD, though we all moved here from other places originally. We've been playing hardcore and pop punk for our entire lives, but with this band we wanted to try something different. Most of us have families and we're not as interested in screaming into a microphone or smashing our heads through walls as we used to be. Solitary Set is a little quieter, a little more introspective, and a little more mature, just like us.
