The New Year Ahead

It’s hard to believe that 2012 is already coming to a close. We began 2012 not entirely sure that our band would even continue its existence…. What a difference a year makes!

Now in December, we humbly look back on what’s been our best year ever as a band in nearly every way. We owe so much of that to you – for your continued support for our band despite nearly 3 years between albums!

As we look ahead to what 2013 holds in store, we’re more excited than ever! We already have a preliminary batch of tour dates for February and March with Mike Mains and the BranchesDinner and a Suit:

Here’s one final little treat from 2012 – a video shot for Invisible Children by our friend Dustin Reid on a rooftop in NYC!

First Ever Music Video & Invisible Children Announcement

We are proud to finally bring you our first official music video ever! The song is “The Best,” which is the closing track of our new album, “Build Anyway.”

We are equally excited to share a fresh batch of US tour dates (below)! A great new band from Orlando, FL called Bearcat will be joining us for the entire run. The tour is in support of an organization we are particularly fond of called Invisible Children.
