The band has just released two new songs — “Privilege” and “We Called It Love” — alongside a note that promises a new album to come:
Hello. we’re back. we have a new album. it was recorded in Montreal and Connecticut with the great producer Peter Katis. We love him and thank him for being there for us. It’s our first with our friends at Last Gang. We made this record for ourselves, for our kids, and for you. And we are so happy and grateful that you’re still listening to our music. here’s a couple of songs from the record
Their most recent one was 2014’s No One Is Lost. Listen to their two new tracks below.
