More Info


“They try and take your soul from you. They beat you down and try and make you compliant. They try and dull you down, remove your edge. And after a while it all starts to weigh on you. You can't help but to become a much less sharper image of your original self. When we listen to the music of TBA, we can change all of that. TBA gives you your edge back. He gives it back and he takes it away and then he gives it back again so that you understand and appreciate the value of such a thing. TBA”
