Notable --The band put out Now's the Time, a five-track EP, last year, and followed it with Hello, Shadow, a full-length that dropped in May. They're also planning to release a live DVD in October taken from a show at the 8x10.

Quotable --August on Hello, Shadow: "It's not written for the radio. It's written how we wrote it and not a whole lot changed once it was recorded. You can hear mistakes, you can hear things that you might think are a little off, but that's how we wanted it to be. It's not so Hollywood or so produced. That's what I really like about the new album."
