The band really does want to Make It Better, and they’re doing so with great music and positive energy.Singer/bassist James Searl spoke about the new album, saying “There is a lot of intention in this release. We had a purpose to prove to ourselves recording this album. We wanted to know that we could put our heads down and do good work fast. It was a great release artistically. It uniquely sounds the most progressive of anything we have ever done while also sounding the most like our first album.”To get you in the mood for this new album, we’re honored to premiere the first single “Live And Travel.” Written by guitarist/vocalist Dylan Savage, the song focuses on “a person’s long journey making their way home to be with loved ones.
