It's been a couple months now since we traded the bright lights of Chicago for the bright lights of NYC! Our shows and our fans out here have been great. We're meeting a lot of really cool new people, hanging out with old friends, and getting into trouble in the city that never sleeps! Currently, we are working on new music which will be included on our new record in 2013. In the meantime, our calendar for the rest of the Fall is booked solid, so stay tuned here for more details. We have a bunch of surprises for you very soon!
