“Growing up in Chicago you learn a lot from the streets,” says vocalist Bryan Grantz. “Once you commit to a lifestyle there is no going back or backing down. You have to stand up for what you believe in through and through.”

The “Egotrip” album features guest vocalists such as John Hoffman (Weekend Nachos), Rob Watson (Lionheart), and Matt Honeycutt (Kublai Khan). Additionally, the band enlisted Chicago rappers MoeCyrus and Baer Coon the Ewokk.

“Recording ‘Egotrip’ was both an amazing and challenging experience,” says bassist Ryan Kramarz. “We knew we wanted to push ourselves as much as possible and let the sound come together organically. As a band, we aimed to take a big step away from the constraints of genres and expectations. We wanted to do something that we could indisputably call our own. We were also very fortunate to have so many talented friends to collaborate with. Every artist featured on this record are people we respect and love working with. Everyone brought something unique to the table and helped shape the overall sound of the album.”
