Check out the single Here (And then read on to see what the band has to say about the single!
“I wrote the lyrics to “The Santa Margarita” after I’d gotten the news that our friend Tony Sly had died,” says vocalist/guitarist Donald Spence. “He’d taken us on a few tours early in our band’s life and I really didn’t know how to process the information. I’ve known people that have died… but this really hurt my heart in a different way. I think that’s because in addition to being a good friend I still really look up to him in many ways. I asked my friend Dave Hause to come in and sing on the chorus with me and we had a blast. He’s such fun person to have around. He ended up hanging in the studio with us for a while and singing on a few tracks. We’re really proud of these songs. I think it’s the strongest record we’ve made so far; a truly collective effort. I can’t wait to play these songs live.”
