SOTY Video Premiere

We all saw the SOTY article in the April issue of the mag, but it goes without saying that a heavy video must follow. Long Beach got a sneak peak Tuesday night to see what Jamie and the boys were able to handle while Down Under, accompanied by a photo show from Burnett and free beers to juice up the crowd. Keep your eyeballs peeled for the video hitting the site soon. You don’t want to miss this one! —Alex Papke
