Notable Currently, the band is working on three albums at the same time. It plans to release two simultaneously later this year or early next year. The third, an album of funny songs in the vein of Flight of the Concords, may see the light of day in the near future, too.

Quotable "It's been fun taking a good long time to really approach putting out a record," Herneker said. "We've been focusing more on that side of the picture - really creating a couple of pieces of music people can sit back and appreciate. We're trying to create more of a timeless album this time around."
