After a quick talk it was clear that the two were going to work together on some ideas that were pushed back in previous band projects.
At the time, Bruno was renting a box room in that area and their lifestyle often brought Troy to crash at Bruno’s. Every day-after was a headache, and every headache was a new tune to work on.
Inspired by the dirty sound of 1980’s Hard Rock, obsessed by the unpredictability of things and a fair amount of Tennessee in bottles, Bruno and Troy came up with a 5 songs EP that were eventually recorded in studio and published in March 2020.
You can find the songs in the EP titled Ashmore Daze!
To this days Rogue Charter are active on writing songs and get their performance ready.

We are lovers of motorcycle clubs and the culture of having charters around the world like a massive family. We thought we may as well start our own "club", and that is where Charter comes from.

What Is Your Favorite Track To Perform Live and Why?
Bruno's choice is Where Do You Come From because it's a tricky guitar part to play, counting the fact that we are not simply standing still.
Troy's choice is Stay Down On Your Knees, because he really doesn't stand time wasters and complainers, and also he never gets enough of loud vocals.

Most of the times one of us has an idea for a specific mood of the song we would be about to write.
Sometimes happens that Bruno's guitar riffs dictate a specific topic for Troy to talk about.
And other times, Troy comes up with lyrics or a topic that Bruno reads, so to understand what type of mood his next guitar riff will have.
