The band has proved its loyalty to the local scene by supporting other local bands whenever they can, including hosting them in the practice space they've created, the Space Music Studio. Seven bands practice there, including Authority Zero, and WINC says one of their biggest goals is to stifle the cliques in the scene and unite local bands — something Devore says the band is succeeding at.

"WINC has brought a lot of love to the local scene," Devore, 32, says. "Tim Yokley [who owns the Space] alone has been a big inspiration, since he put together a place that bands can not only practice at, but also work together and be unified."

In addition to spreading the love at the Space, WINC plans on recording a song that features 20 local bands and cites fellow local acts Captain Squeegee and The VeraGroove as inspirations.

With the album finally nearing release, the members plan to focus less on side projects and devote themselves to pushing the WINC sound beyond their most famous fans.

"I feel like the band's been through so much," Murphy says. "We're finally on the right track."
