Shell: “Listen to this song I wrote in high school. I think you’d enjoy singing it and it would fit our sound well.” *three minutes later*
Me: *crying* “You just get me so well, this is literally me to the point that I could have written it. It’s like we were destined to be in a band together.” *crying harder*
And two spooky Rone instrumentals later, the song currently known as “Poisonous” was born. If you’ve been to any of our recent shows, you’ve heard it.
Playing it tomorrow at Lost Lake
Doors are at 7pm.

The Comeback is always GREATER than the SETBACK…
Every single one of us has experienced setbacks in our lifetime. From falling in love to breaking up, from getting a job to losing a job, from having children and then experiencing an empty nest. These circumstances turn our world upside down, inside out and out of balance.These are the characteristics of a radical shift!
At the time, we may experience or feel as if everything is falling apart, we have no control and we are losing everyone and everything. Often times, the only way to really learn is through experience. Here are some ways you can stage your comeback after a setback.
1.Accept what you cannot control.
The first step in staging a comeback after a setback is to accept what you cannot control. For example, I cannot control Mother Nature so I had to accept that there was a hurricane heading my way. I also couldn't control when I got power and internet back so that I could get back to business. In both these instances, there was absolutely nothing I could do. Rather than struggling and getting stressed, I had to accept it. By letting it go, I was able to get some much-needed rest guilt-free.
2. Focus on the things you can control.
After you accept what you cannot control, you can focus on the things you can.
3. Look for the lessons.
The final step in coming back stronger after a setback is to look for the lessons. It's so easy for us to get overly emotional when we experience a setback. While it's important to feel our disappointment, there's a difference between feeling our feelings and wallowing.
Setbacks don't have to keep you from experiencing success. They are simply a part of the ride in business and in life. By using these tips, you can come back from a setback stronger than ever before. Artist cred: @chrystelle_f_
