Do you live in hawkes Bay, play Rythm guitar and want to become the final piece of convicted under crowns?
Our band is moments away from booking studio time followed by touring but until the band is full all is on hold.

We are a hard/deathcore band aiming to be the best act hawkes Bay has produced from this genre. All member have 6+ years experience with playing in this genre and our basist has previously toured south Africa for 12 years playing hardcore along side some big names. This is the best and probably only offer around here so get on it and flick a pm, cheers
