TangledUp 01/14/09 11:31 AM

Being from Orange County, I am definitely checking these guys out. I love discovering local talent. :-d

themadsilentist 01/14/09 11:39 AM

So good.
Everyone in CA should go catch their mini-tour with Dizzy Balloon, two very talented young bands and absolutely worth seeing live.

irthesteve 01/14/09 11:41 AM

The Jakes are awesome, great group of guys

yes! I think i might make it out to the show at Blake's, two awesome bands that need their recognition. Next up... Maldroid

caityconundrum 01/14/09 12:07 PM

holy fuck this is so exciting. i've been watching them play local showcases for the last two years or so and i never thought they'd be out playing with big bands across the country. that's so awesome.

noles848 01/14/09 12:23 PM

thanks! i like the sound, just bought the ep off smartpunk!

cuzimlefthanded 01/14/09 12:51 PM

so proud to say i went to high school with these guys. amazing band

blebbio 01/14/09 12:54 PM

Great band.

Maldroid definitely has more of a following than DB, though...I think. I don't know, I haven't seen Maldroid since the KGB reunion show.

I'll probably be at the Blake's show as well.

sodamnclever 01/14/09 01:13 PM

i wish that their show with kings of leon wasn't sold out. :-(

StevevetS 01/14/09 01:35 PM

wow i love these songs. buying their CD now if its out there

cory-182 01/14/09 01:46 PM

The Daily Chorus has been pimping these guys for quite some time now. Their EP has been on Smartpunk's Top 100 list for quite a while as well.

amysaurus 01/14/09 01:55 PM

Ahh this is my friends friends band! I can't wait to tell her about all the recognition they've been getting :-)

Meggers 01/14/09 02:07 PM

I got the chance to see them last week and they're amazing. The EP is amazing.

atouchoverrated 01/14/09 02:23 PM

Not going to lie, I'm pretty floored at what I've been hearing for the last hour.

stolenfromrock 01/14/09 02:40 PM

for such a young band these guys are incredibly talented. I see nothing but success for them and hopefully that comes in the near future. they deserve it.

geebee889 01/14/09 02:58 PM

These guys are amazing. If you haven't heard them, you need to!

terrycw89 01/14/09 03:15 PM

Someone I know who knows these guys sent me one of their songs when they were first starting out. Glad to see they're getting bigger.

TSLROCKS 01/14/09 03:34 PM

I really hate smartpunk. I would definitely buy this EP if shipping wasn't almost as much as the EP itself

untilnextwinter 01/14/09 03:58 PM

I saw these guys a few months ago! They were the one band I remembered that actually sounded good. They seemed like nice dudes.

adfged 01/14/09 04:40 PM

i saw them a few days ago.
they're so talented.

Then find something else to buy to offset the high S&H.

Haha I was going to pre order Thursday's new album but it comes with a poster and if you order a poster tube with your order the S&H price skyrockets to just over $11

When I saw that you quoted me, I figured it would be condescending.

You never responded to my PM.

Garett Press 01/14/09 07:45 PM

These guys really are the shit

WhiteLies. 01/14/09 08:49 PM

I love the Jakes. :-)
