Notable: When Hurricane Katrina canceled some tour dates last year, the band slipped into the studio and recorded some songs for a coming album. Weber said they plan to perform the new tunes on the current tour, which takes them into Canada and back down the East Coast. They'll also play tracks off their two EPs, he said.

Quotable: "We're going to play the stuff that's on the records, but since they were EPs, it's kind of easy to pick through it and still have enough room to play some new songs," Weber said. "Also, because some of the markets we are hitting are new, it's kind of like anything we play -- even if it's something that's on the records -- is still going to be new to them."
