guest and original vocalist, Aj Davis. Once again, thank you to all who support us.

keepin the name. If someone wants to sue us, they can, whatever. So hey! Split-Sense is playin 3 times this
weekend, we already had a blast Friday night, we're playin Saturday night, and we're in the battle of the bands Sunday night.

really like to thank all the fans and friends who have supported us recently, THANK YOU! And don't forget, Battle of
the Bands Sunday! Be There!
