3 of the bandmembers grandfather did time in oakalla for standing up to some commys or something. I dont really know the history but it was a good thing!
Anyways those songs on the site are just the demos. As you can hear the actual sound of the “Demo” is amazing compared other many other bands demos that are all crackly sounding and whatnot, their demos sound like professional songs using really really good recording equipment.
Also you havent heard their songs that are going on the album. I have some of those songs and all their demos on my computer (about 30 songs) because im related to a band-memeber, and as much as id like to post one of those songs up to prove a point, i cant until the album drops. The closest sounding song to the album ones from that site would probably “Open Road/Open Door”.
Billy, im guessing you listened to the Mr Smith song, i dont particulary like that one either.
