With the release of “A Life of Fire” E.P., 80 Proof has emerged onto the Orange County music scene to a wave of enthusiasm. Though the band has a history that stretches back to 2004, the group has only recently reunited to pursue a sincere musical career. After finishing college and other personal endeavors the guys came together in the summer of 2010 to begin writing new material.
