A six song split between The Brokedowns and Vacation Bible School can now be streamed exclusively on the Jaded In Chicago website. The split is available for purchase from It’s Alive Recordsin 7″ vinyl format. Adam Alive had this to say about the release:
“Both bands recorded with Joe Gac at The Funk Luxury Chalet and Litterbox Studios, both in Elgin, Illinois. I think the studio names might be jokes and it is just a one man operation doing his thing out of his house. Both were mastered by Dave Williams (of the band Crusades) at Rock Among Us. Cover art by Natali Wiseman. Both bands are playing Fuck Dave Strait Fest August 15 – 18 in MPLS, MN.”
