Rise Of The Machines

The Sun profiled Secret Machines and asked the band about the success they’ve enjoyed. “Success isn’t how I thought it would be,” singer Brandon Curtis responded. “I always thought we’d be rich but we’re not. I always dreamed about that — having some money.” Drummer Josh Garza added: “Yeah but the rent is paid — now that’s something I always dreamed about.”
