Noisey are currently streaming the first release from the upcoming release “kid who stays in the picture” which is a song that frontman Steve Bays says is about “parting ways with a best friend as well as the importance of fighting to stay young at heart and holding on to your innocence for as long as you can”. You can listen to the track here.
The LP is a celebration to the fans who have supported the bands career since 2002. Bays says:
“To be able to tour from 1999 to 2014 and play hundreds of shows a year was amazing.It changed all of our lives. It was the greatest experience I could ever imagine. I can relate to our fans and I respect our fans. They are the kind of people I’d hang out with. I’m proud of every single record, and of finding the ground between making it challenging and fresh, but also not being afraid to be entertaining and put on a crazy show. Every show we ever did was just a total high energy spectacle and that’s a great legacy to have”.
