Hey Neighbor! Meet: Wake Breakers

Not exactly sure if they qualify as “neighbors” so much as “roommates” — since they have become our first Cohere Bandwidth member band! We plan to see Wake Breakers quite a bit in our shared rehearsal space in downtown Fort Collins. Possibly in their bathrobes, or in whatever they feel comfortable wearing around the house. Like pirate-punk eye patches.

How long have you been together as a band?
Since February 2015.

What made you decide to seek out shared rehearsal space?
Because the conditions were bad in our past space: no air conditioning, small, not enough equipment.

Editor's Note: Here's a "before" picture of Landlocked at practice. Hot. Cramped. Decidedly not five-star.

What do you do for work … and play?
Group hacky sack. Video games. Abe teaches uke. Trip and Parker have dreams. (<<Editor’s Note: this is what we *think* this read; the interview sheet was completed with a certain amount of youthful zest. We hope Trip and Parker have dreams. Everybody has a dream.)
