The past couple weeks on Start The Beat have been fantastic conversations. If you haven’t had a chance to check out these episodes you should set aside some time to engage your earholes with them.


STNV SHOWS WINTER SPRING 2K19.jpg

Been having a lot of fun with Sikes and The New Violence over the past few weeks playing a lot of more shows and working on new material as well. If you have not had a chance to see us yet this year the new set we’re playing is pretty rad and you should try to catch us at one of our upcoming shows! We have a couple more gigs this month along with a nice handful of others throughout the summer that we’ll be announcing soon.


We have just launched 2019 Summer Merch for Greywalker and if you’re into that sort of thing… well… you can give us your money I suppose! :-) People have been asking for us to make the shorts again and this is the FIRST TIME we’ve ever had snapbacks so I’m excited that we’re able to get these out to everyone.

You can also pick up this stuff at our upcoming shows throughout the summer while supplies last. YOu can find a list of some events down below. Come headbang!
