It’s something all up-and-coming bands must go through in order to “make it” to a point of respect, almost like a fraternity/sorority’s “rush” to becoming part of the music industry’s universe. Sometimes that means getting stuck in stand-still traffic on the side of the highway in the middle of North Carolina on Mother’s Day.

Drummer Reuben Gingrich delivered the commuters who were also stranded on the highway with just over a minute of rock solace.

Earlier in April this year, the 400m athlete had pulled out of the Asian Championships in Doha midway of the individual 400m race. Deputy chief coach Radhakrishnan Nair, had then attributed the mishap to a lower back spasm at L4 and L5 which are the lowest two vertebrae in the lumbar spine.
