I vaped again last night (and I would kill to be in love)

by Customer Service

Hey, we're a new Emo band that has been slowly gaining traction across Canada through relentless touring over the past few years. I think the biggest factor behind our growing audience is that we have fun doing what we do and to me no song represents that better than this one.
