Shane Smith (lead vocals/guitar) and Alex Shepherd (drums) grew up in Cary, North Carolina in a neighborhood known as Windsor Oaks. When they partnered with Brandon Scott McLean (guitar/vocals) to form a band, the name was born.

We wanted to pay tribute to where it all started, says Smith of the band name. But after years of touring, were excited about the new album and were ready to extend our fanbase nationwide.

The band celebrated the release with a sold-out concert for fans on March 1st at Pour House in Raleigh. They have also just released a music video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYNj5_ikuFA&feature=youtu.be) for Touch the Sky.
