Tuesday night I went out to see my buddies in T.R.O.Y share the stage with Red Sun Rising at Old Rock House in St.Louis, MO. It was a killer show! It is always fun getting to see T.R.O.Y play but especially cool when they break out some brand new songs like their new single "Wicked World."

After the show I was able to sneak in a quick podcast with them to discuss their weekend at Rocklahoma, Denny's and their new single "Wicked World". If you haven't, download a copy on ITunes, add it to your Spotify playlists & check out the video on YouTube!

On this episode you'll hear:

  • The Reckoning 
  • Wicked World
