June 10th at Tail of the Junction in Toronto (our album release party).
July 9th at the Doors Pub and Metal Bar in Hamilton.
July 17th, the Queens, Barrie.

What’s your goal for 2022?

More shows, more new music, more connections, more Botox, and more Doomicorn! Also, thinking of entering a portal we found behind our garage.
