Phantom Tails: Featured Musician- July 2011

© Phantom Tails

Phantom Tails has existed for a couple of years, based in Minneapolis, MN. We all came here from different cities; Dave and Logan moved here from the ruggedlands of Wisconsin, Serge and Orion moved from the foamy seas of the Gulf of Mexico. We joined forces here in the midwest to play some gritty electronic rock music.
