The group has toured with the likes of NAPALM DEATH, DISFEAR, SKELETONWITCH, VICTIMS, ROTTEN SOUND, TOXIC HOLOCAUST and EVERY TIME I DIE, among others, and played the Scion Rock Fest, Maryland Deathfest and the New England Metal And Hardcore Festival. The band previously released two full-lengths and several seven-inch singles and EPs through the Southern Lord, Deathwish Inc. and Trash Art labels.
