The riffs are flowing at the Mars homebase and we can’t wait to unleash them at new shows once the Mars Metal has been forged into sonic steel.

In the meantime, we have some awesome shows coming up including a show celebrating Tony’s birthday on February 20th. With Grail, Deguello, and Bellringer.

Now that DoM is in full swing, we’re hitting it HARD! Writing new tunes and getting to play show with heavy friends all over!

First off we have an impromptu show at Red Eyed Fly on January 17th. It’s an early 8:30 show, but show up early because they start ON TIME!! We’re sad that it’s the end of an era for REF and our good friend Mike Boudreau is moving on to other endeavors. Red Eyed Fly was our first home away from the Red Planet and we are glad to be there to Rock it out in style.

On January 31st we are playing with our friends Final Drive on their No Exit Tour. If you haven’t checked out their new album, you need to do this ASAP! Heaviness will be brought, and there might even be a new tune in the mix…..

On Feb. 20th we celebrating Tony’s Birthday a little early at The Lost Well with our heavy friends Deguello (and more TBA). This one is sure to rule!! Thanks to Dusty at Wounded Earth Booking!!! This one is going RAGE!!
