Local Cleveland rockers The Missing (minus Chad) visited the on-air studios of The Rock on 88.7 FM WJCU last Friday night to discuss their great love of the early ’00s rock band Trapt and about their upcoming shows.

The new album Exaggerate the Distance is the second act in this musical adventure that is available to any listener out there who chooses to have the experience. It’s a solid rock album that many people probably don’t know about, because Johnson and Hess create for the love of the art. Continue reading
