From following them through instagram and all other social medias I'm insanely stoked on this record. The use of different instruments like keyboard and Matthew Kennedy on guitars. He's going to bring such a great dynamic to this band.
Really curious what they bring to the table with this record; with the addition of Matt I'm hoping for some keys in the songs. They did say they wanted to take their direction darker and more "Work in Progress" like so we'll see. But AJ's voice with piano just works

Every time I listen to their first album, Reach for the Sun, I think, "This is their best album." Every time I listen to their second album, War Paint, I think, "This is their best album."
I've been loving this song in particular lately.
I've always heard drama from these guys and I have had both their albums on my itunes for easily a year now, but never really gave it a fair listen. This song hits home today, gonna listen to the rest of them. Thanks for sharing.
