While the Sacramento, CA natives enjoyed a healthy first week on the charts with their new album “Jackpot Juicer” last month, the post-hardcore outfit were dealt a devastating blow earlier this year when their bassist Tim Feerick passed away in April (reportedly from a suspected fentanyl overdose.) In June, the band’s co-vocalist Tillian Pearson stepped down from amid a amid a pair of sexual misconduct allegations.
