Indian Taker just finished a tour with Rookie Town and will be heading out on another tour with Missive in February.  They have also started writing their next release, a full-length album.

This is the fourth release from Shortcuts. Their most recent self-titled EP was released in 2012 by UK label Close To Home Records.
