Aggro Or Die
AOD! is about not only energy, but promoting positivity and having fun with songs having videogame themes and skateboarding, to songs about meeting life headfirst and tackling those things that are most important to the individual, whether you be punk, metalhead, or stoner, ska kid, emo brat, or loaner, we embrace all people from all walks of life to get into it and keep it a threat!

Several mini tours were played and a lot more shows and after an amazing set of shows with Quarterlife Crisis across the midwest, Matt Bruce finally decided to pursue other life goals.
