This event is all ages

Since their debut in late 2014, Turncoat has worked hard to make a name all their own. Taking influence from 80's hardcore punk with a mix of thrash, Turncoat has set a pace of searing guitar style, pounding drums and unforgettable vocals. All the while remaining true to the solid foundation that hardcore was built apon. Bringing to light personal, and everyday struggles in a way that is impossible to ignore. Following the release of their debut single "Growing Up" , Turncoat has wasted no time hitting the road. Touring most of the United States in their first year. With no peak to their potential ,Turncoat has been relentlessly pushing to reach every corner of the hardcore community. Telling it like it is to anyone who will listen. As the band prepares to release their self titled EP , they continue to remain on the road hitting new grounds and tearing down barriers .

Sometimes, entrees are better on leftover night.

Formerly in the Colorado Springs local band "Restore All Vengeance," songwriter Joseph Acosta and drummer Derek Bricker opened the refrigerator one day and smelt something grand. It was material their old band cooked up long ago, but was never consumed. So they decided to sit down for dinner and have some RAV leftovers.

But they weren't alone.

Woody Harrelson look-alike and vocalist Zach Carey joined them for dinner, bringing his own leftover dish from his last project, "Oddly Familiar."

Soon the three of them began mixing together their various foods and spoon-feeding each other, bite after bite.

It wasn't long before they each realized that what they were consuming together were no longer leftovers. Nay, it was a new entree entirely.

"This doesn't taste like metalcore," said Derek, who prefers to be called "Dak," named after Luke's co-pilot who died violently in "The Empire Strikes Back."

"No, the way the cayenne pepper blends with the lemon sauce is more old school hardcore punk," said Zach, "with a hint—a tiny hint—of progressive. Spicy."

"I agree," said Joseph while tears trickled down his uniquely good-looking face. "It's beautiful, the way it all blends together."

Dak, who has a grossly inhuman flesh-to-body-hair ratio, squirted some cream into his tea.

"That's kinda icky, but oddly attractive," commented Zach.

"So should we wait for another guitarist and a bassist to enjoy our dinner with us?" asked Joseph, the more mature bandmate.

"That won't be necessary," responded Zach, who was creamin' his own Earl Grey by now. "I prefer our current three-way."

As the young gentlemen finished their candlelit supper, they continued their private conversation over some cheesecake.

Then, the unthinkable: the candles climaxed and set their hearts ablaze.
