They Face Reaction – We Are Not From Here (2012)

January 1, 2012

I got hooked up with They Face Reaction through mutual friends and was asked to play bass, which I happily obliged. This band got to do a lot of cool stuff including opening for the Smoking Popes at a Riot Fest Secret Show, and recording this album. This album was recorded by Stephen Egerton of the Descendents at his studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. That was probably one of the best weeks of my life.

JT moved to Seattle and was replaced by Mike Walker of You, Me, and the People (now known as Nature’s Neighbor). We wrote and recorded a bunch more songs but only released these two singles. Someday I think we will release the rest of it in proper fashion.
