They proved to be a highly energetic band as they started with Disguise. Vocalist Amanda Gabel has a very energetic stage presence as she regularly went out to interact with the audience. Their set was filled with songs to make you rock out which included Mirror Mirror, Home and Night. The band has only released two EP’s so far with the second one titled This Is Home and is set to release on October 5th. To give their audience a taste of it, they played Promises from the upcoming EP which they have also released a music video for.
