We are excited to announce that our new album, “Live, Vol. Four” will be released on December 18th and is ready for pre-order here. This latest live album was recorded at last year’s New Year’s Eve show at Raleigh’s PNC Arena and includes two new songs – “Satan Pulls The Strings” and “Rejects in the Attic.” It is available on CD/DVD, digital, and vinyl. Everyone who orders the vinyl will receive a digital download of the album during release week – vinyl will be available in early 2016.
In addition to this pre-order, we are also running a holiday sale in our online store. All items (except “Live, Vol. Four”) are 10-50% off! Click here to check out the sale.
Without our crew, we would not be able to do what we do. They spend countless hours making us look and sound good; they drive through the night in all kinds of weather to get us from city to city; they sacrifice time with loved ones to be on the road with us. We are thankful for our crew. By honoring them, we hope to pay tribute to all of the victims of Friday night’s attacks, for we are all the road crew.
The Nemo EP is a self-produced piece of work from a band with more passion for music than they knew what to do with. It is a brief and energetic snapshot of where and who we were near the end of our time together as a five-piece; an approximate 2-year period characterized by explosive (and loud) rehearsals and performances in and around North Carolina. A labor of love for all involved, it was a time of discovery in terms of music and artistry, a time which fundamentally taught us not only about performing and making music, but about communication and friendship. For Scott and me, it was a kind of textural bootcamp for learning how our voices might work together in different types of songs. For all of us, it was an occasion to present a lifelong love for music. It is extremely exciting for us to be able to offer the EP in a way that is, fidelity-wise, in keeping with the quality that we hoped to initially achieve when we first recorded it. Fifteen years on, I still genuinely love this recording. For John, Kenny, Noah, Scott, and myself, the re-release of the Nemo EP is a way of nodding to a time and an artistic collaboration that we remain very proud of – a way of presenting a moment that, for us, was uniquely essential in its invention, its raging musicality, its inexhaustible energy, and above all, its abounding fun.
There is no dream more wild than to make it in a rock and roll band with your best friends.
The Nemo EP is available digitally here and on vinyl here.
We are pleased to announce that we will be playing a special show for friends and supporters of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on December 5th in Memphis, TN.

Details on how to participate and attend the show can be found here. We sincerely thank you for supporting this very important cause with us.

Last week, the Tennessee Theatre alerted us to suspicious purchasing activity for our Legendary Giveback IV show on 12/04. After consulting with our team, we decided to have all suspect purchases canceled and refunded, as we were advised that these orders were likely made by scalpers. We are disappointed that a quantity of tickets for this show were not purchased by our true fans, but we are happy to announce that the refunded scalper tickets will be available for purchase today at 10am EDT. Click here to get yours and we look forward to seeing you at the show.
We are excited to team up with David Hale to bring you a few new tour-only merch items. The hoodie and shirts can be purchased on tour starting October 1st in Lexington, KY at Rupp Arena.
