The band's long tenure at Iceland Airwaves culminated in an incredible set on Saturday, November 10. Despite a litany of technical issues — a malfunctioning keyboard, a broken string, a sudden and intense muscle cramp — the band delivered what was said to be their most intense set ever at the festival to a packed house of over 300 people. Kyle, Jimmy, and Max would like to thank everyone who have supported them through the years at the festival. Onward and upward!

Recording Weeks Ahead of Schedule
January 31, 2017
We figured we'd give ourselves a few weeks for acoustic guitar and keyboards, starting January 27. It felt like we could get them done faster, but hey...recording an album never goes as planned. And indeed this was no exception: for here I am three days later, and **we're done with acoustic guitars and keyboards.** Yes, that's right—a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. There is some major juju flowing down here in the mountains.
