It's been an amazing year for Covina and we owe a huge chunk of our success to the support from all our friends, family, and fans. We've had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of the industries best bands, such as: Suicide Silence, Saliva, Arsonists Get All The Girls, The Devil Wears Prada, Silent Planet, Veil Of Maya, Thousand Below, Fit For A King, In Hearts Wake, Like Moths To Flames, Phinehas, I Set My Friends on Fire, and Kingdom of Giants. With the help of our good friend, Clifton Miles of Deadroom Recordings, we released our freshman full-length album entitled Rise.Fall.Repeat. This was only our second album ever recorded, but the maturity in the overall structure and sound of each song is a testament to the hard-work that Joey (drummer), Nate (guitarist), and Ray (bassist/guitarist) put into the album. We appreciate Cliff's patience and input in putting this record together for us and we were, and still are, extremely happy with the outcome. We also want to thank Kevin Kreusel (founder) and Jeff Matice of Krueked Media for helping us put out two music videos this year, in support our full-length album. His work is amazing and we enjoyed every minute of working along side him and Jeff. We look forward to working with these two fine gentlemen in the future. We also welcomed our new bassist Josh to the family and we are extremely happy with what he brings to the table. We also want to thank Malissa Prevost Pereira for her guidance and wisdom. We honestly wouldn't have accomplished what we have without her help, so thanks again Malissa! We love you! Mikey T! We can't say enough thanks to this dude, as well. Mike Terrazas has been a huge help with his many years of experience in the music industry. We love and appreciate the hell out of you, dude! Cindy Limon, a.k.a Safiro Love, of Safiro Love Studios... You and Miguel are amazing people and we thank you for your help in putting together some awesome media for us. Paul! You make up the trio of Safiro Love Studios and we love you too, bro! To Esmeralda, thank you, thank you, and thank you. You took some amazing shots of us and we enjoyed working with you. Miguel (of Marila Voe)! Dude! We look forward to working with you more in 2018! We love you dude! We also want to thank Jenn Holt & Erica (Twin Productions) and Anthony (Come And Take It Productions-Austin). Ya'll have put us on some great shows and have afforded us the opportunity to share our music with many people. To Toni, Steve, and Spencer (Zombies Bar); we are eternally grateful for your love and support since day one! To Rene (Jacks Bar), Jesse (Fitzgeralds Bar), and Roland Torres (RT Productions): thank you all for your support. To our bro's in Gnarwolf! WE FUCKING LOVE YA'LL AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO HITTING THE ROAD AGAIN WITH YA'LL IN 2018! Finally, to our friends, family, and fans: Covina would not have had the year we did without you all. We've only been doing this for two years now, but because of your love and support it has been a great two years. We look forward to what 2018 brings; and to hitting the road to share our love and passion of music with the rest of this beautiful country we call home. Thank you. Thank you. And thank you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
