Yup, our new album is coming soon! As it’s a special one for us, we wanted to do something equally special in releasing it to the world. We’ve teamed up with PledgeMusic (along with our good friends at Bloodshot Records) to make this happen!


Here’s how it works – you can pre-order any of the items listed on our Pledge Music page. We put up some pretty cool and unique things that we hope you’ll enjoy. Everyone who pre-orders the digital album will get a download sent to you on the release date, October 2. All physical pre-order items; CDs, LPs, posters, shirts, hats…. will start shipping the first week of October and will continued to be shipped as new orders come in.

Once you pre-order anything here, you get instant access to a special part of the site via the ‘AccessPass.’ Here, we’ll be posting exclusive recordings and more special content.

Thanks for being the best fans on the planet!

Brian, Mark, John, Keith
