I moved to California in October 2011 and got in touch with Paul D'elia from Broken Patterns with whom Deep Sleep played a handful of dates with on our West Coast tour a few years back.

I thought I'd ask he if he might be interested in joining Kent State and he asked if I was interested in doing Suspect with Nick Townsend from Knife Fight (who also joined Kent State) and Spencer from Find Him and Kill Him.

 After the demo cassette on PF, Eagle Barber (Stay Gold, Champion, Berthold City) joined on drums and we recorded an 9 song LP for React!.

We played a decent grip of shows with Bane, Infest, Sex Prisoner, Pig Destroyer and many more! We played our last show with Bane at the Che Cafe in Feb 2016.
