“Remember that time you liked that boy and all you could think about was what it would be like to kiss him and your friends told you that it wouldn’t work but you knew in your heart of hearts that it would be perfect. That is Since Forever.”

I recently had a chance to talk to the band (Zach Easterwood on lead vocals, Jason Friedman on drums, Brendan Johnson on guitar and vocals, Eric Woodie on bass and Taylor Easterwood on guitar and vocals) about how they met, their innovative ways of getting themselves out there and their new L.O.V.EP due out on October 19th.
