"We usually try to go all out and interact with the crowd as much as possible, and we just like to have a good time live," says bassist Josh Lopez. "We put all our passion and blood, sweat, and tears into our music."

The band released its debut disc this March, the six-song EP, Please Stand By, which they'll be performing during their Warped Tour set. The EP was influenced by like-minded bands from The Receiving End of Sirens to Emery, uniting heavy themes with melodic elements.

The band plans on releasing a video for their single "Cellmates in Hell" by summer's end, but for today, it's all about staying cool and collected for the fans who voted them in and for the new ones they hope to gain.

"Last year, I felt like we played a set three times when we got off-stage — I was drenched in sweat, and my fingers had blisters on them from rubbing on my guitar," Lopez says. "Last year, we made the mistake of coming without water, so water's going to be a big thing."

And even though their show this week is a hometown performance, the band still plans on making their mark amid the national acts they're sharing the bill with.

"As far as representing Phoenix, I think we earned our way onto this show," says singer Jeffrey Becker. "We worked really hard to earn the fans we have now, and we really want to impress the people at Warped. We want to say, 'Hey, Warped Tour, we are here to show you what Arizona music has to offer, and this is what we do.'"
