Out of the remains of Merchant Ships, the band Midwest Pen Pals was born. Then out of the remains of Midwest Pen Pals, William Bonney was born. As a result, these experience-hardened lads became one of the midwest's beloved screamo bands without much problem. They frequently go in and out of hiatus because growing up takes up time, but that just leaves their fans yearning for more. This summer (2012) the band is hitting the road again, and in the process they have decided to release their EP "Good Vibes" on vinyl to sell while they are playing shows.
