OUT is a remarkable rock band based in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Comprised of close friends Chafe Hensley, TJ Larmee, Mark Larmee, and Ike Turner, OUT have just released a new record called Swim Buddies, which is out now via Comedy Minus One Records, and has prompted the band to play select shows in America over the next while. I connected with everyone in OUT recently for a chat about a band called Minutes, which some of them were in, what goes on in Kalamazoo, how they’re dealing with our heavy times, their record Swim Buddies, and much more.
