With a straight-out-of-the-garage noisiness balanced by bold hooks, the LP saw the band reach landmark successes including top-25 commercial radio charting, performances at major events/festivals (NXNE, SXSW, CMJ, The Great Escape, Pemberton Music Festival, etc.), and tours both in Canada and internationally with a live performance described as “full of intensity and gusto” (Nottingham Live), “chaotic energy” (Coog Radio), and “tremendous” (Huffington Post).

JPNSGRLS is Charlie Kerr, Chris McClelland, Graham Serl & Colton Lauro.
