In a music industry full of ever-changing digital trends and fads, there’s one thing that still rings true – the indie DIY scene is as alive and well as ever.

This summer, the bands will hit the road together and SPARTAN RECORDS proud to help commemorate the tour with a split EP that consists of two new songs from each band.
