After going through several line-up changes since forming in 2008, this is their first full-length with a solidified trio composed of guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Chad Peck, bassist Devin Peck, and drummer Paul Brown. The album also arrives after the group's van was stolen in 2013, including thousands of dollars' worth of instruments and equipment.
