Notable Tomorrow, the band will officially release its first full-length album, Hearts, Roads and Tears. Instead of building a song layer by layer, band members set up and recorded live in studio.

Quotable "We're a live band, so we figured we'd play them live," Zook said. "We had a wealth of songs because [Wile] writes all the time. It was hard to choose some songs, but we just went in there and played the songs we wanted to."
