Three Stories

Three Stories Album CoverOur debut EP, released in March 2010 on Lokashakti Records, represents our first effort at politically driven protest music the way we’ve always thought it should be done. Drawing musical inspiration from genres as diverse as punk, post-hardcore, western, surf, mariachi, and Irish folk, the songs deal each in their own way with the reality of war, and its effects upon different groups of people involved. This is our first attempt at creating protest music that’s both relevant and effective, while still retaining its strength as a form of art.

03. We Regret To Inform You (5:25)
