Inside Music host James Shotwell talks to Ben Liebsch of You, Me, And Everyone We Know. Instead of discussing music, the two talk about Ben's struggles with alcoholism and addiction, as well as his recent marriage, and his ongoing struggle to come to terms with trauma from his childhood. They also discuss the band's new EP, Dogged, which arrives on March 17.
"I eventually after freaking out.. starting to get suicidal about things.. I started to see a therapist and started seeing about medication and stuff and just being like I need to figure this out – whatever’s going on with me… I can’t keep suffering… I need to sort out the things that are missing me out… I eventually found out I suffer from PTSD from childhood things that happened… but I’ve realized that it’s okay that you’re damaged and It’s been a lesson in learning and that’s sort of what this whole EP is about…”
At You Me and Everyone We Know's show the other night, Ben Liebsch stated that he had been sober for three years now and recently was in LA recording new music. He also said that the band would be touring this upcoming spring in support of the new album.

Augustine from YMAEWK/Little Indianscommented in a thread called "Best Guitar Flips." He responded to another user and said he's almost finished self-producing an album for The Little Indians, as well as producing/recording other artists from Baltimore. He also says in the post that he is now a live member in Hellogoodbye since The Early November is back together (I'm guessing filling in for Joe Marro).
