"Ever since we formed this band it was a goal of ours to have the opportunity to tour overseas. Never in our wildest dreams did we ever see ourselves not only traveling the world many time over, but at the same time start to feel as at home overseas as we do in our own country. This European tour marks a monumental achievement in our band's career and it will commemorate all that we have achieved together and serve as a new expanse of sturdy ground as we move forward into the future. " says the band.
The band have done a great cover of 'Cat Heaven' by the wonderful, Jets To Brazil which can be exclusively downloaded from the bands official web site
Singer James says: "We were fucking around with recording a cover in my living room. We decided to go with one of my favorite songs by one of our favorite bands, Jets To Brazil. It's a gorgeous song that I can never tell whether or not it's saddest or happiest thing I've ever heard. I suppose it's a lot like life. Enjoy"
'Everything You Ever Loved', the band's sophomore full-length release which was produced by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Cursive, Minus the Bear) received critical acclaim upon release earlier this year via Rise Records.
