PS we stopped by the infamous Daytrotter Studios yesterday morning in Rock Island, IL and recorded a 5 song session. got to play on some rad gear and re-interpret a couple of our songs and record a little surprise. not sure yet when the session will be released, but we’ll keep you posted. very excited to share!
