New Album & Song + Tour Details

Greetings Friends –

It’s been a while. We missed you!!! First, we wanted to thank each and every one of you for supporting the band over the last 3 years. It’s been a really wild ride and we could not have done it without you. We talk all of the time about how lucky we are to have such amazing fans from far and near. Thank you!!

Over the last 12 months, we have been working on a new album and today we are happy to announce that it will be released on April 21st in the USA and April 20th everywhere else. The album is called Sound & Color and we are really proud of it.

The first single off the record is called “Don’t Wanna Fight” and we made this little video that you can check out at our website and YouTube.  You can also download the song at iTunes, Amazon and the like or stream it at Spotify, rdio, Beats Music and others.

We made the record at the Sound Emporium in Nashville, TN. Our friend Blake Mills co-produced it with us and Shawn Everett engineered and mixed it. These guys put their hearts and souls into this album and we are so appreciative of their dedication to the project.

There are several ways to purchase it. Here is a list of options:

iTunes – Pre-order at iTunes and get “Don’t Wanna Fight” immediately with more songs to follow


Official Store

Urban Outfitters – exclusive colored vinyl edition

Target – includes a bonus live disc

Indie Record Stores 

We have been off the road for a while now and are beyond excited to get out there again and play this new music for you.  The reaction we had at the Georgia Theatre a few weekends ago was overwhelming.  It felt so good to connect with the crowds again and do what we love most, play live.

In a month or so, we will begin touring and will journey across the planet to re-connect with y’all and share the tunes.  Check the interwebs for dates already announced and don’t worry, we will be hitting a lot of your hometowns over the next few years.

On tour, we will have some new friends with us…Paul Horton has joined on keys (yes, we now have 2 keyboard players!) and our friends Lloyd, Shanay and Karita will be adding some incredible backing vocals to the mix.

So there you have it.  We are back and real happy about it. We couldn’t be more proud of Sound & Color and we can’t wait for you to hear it.

Be sure to stay connected with us online as there will be more exciting information coming out very very soon.

See you on the Road.

Brittany, Heath, Steve and Zac
