What's up with the 'Travie' moniker?

So is he doing this while working on new Gym Class or are they on a break?

Break.

I like the song. Good summer tuneage.

And I'm guessing he couldn't sign to Nappy Boy officially because of GCH's deal with FBR/Decaydance. He's on their mixtape and T-Pain's all over his blog, so I think there's a relationship there somewhere with the label.

Song isn't that bad. Will definitely be spinning it on the beach this summer.

I had no idea, I never really heard much of the last GCH release so I was hoping to hear something about a new one.

Not bad, but not my type. As someone stated above, it's definitely fit to be a summer jam.

maybe the fact that he has been called Travie since before GCH even existed :shrug:

Decent song... I don't think it will pick up with the mainstream audience though.

Seriously? Man, I really don't pay attention to those guys, I guess. I thought it was Travis. Hmm.

But according to McCoy, there's nothing to fear. Because while, yes, he's currently working on his solo debut an album called The Lazarus Project he's not slacking on his Gym Class duties either. Far from it, in fact.

...we've already started demo-ing for the new Gym Class record, PCC II. I won't get into what that acronym stands for, but anybody that's followed GCH for a while knows what I'm talking about.

"We're about 12 demos deep," he continued. "All I got to say is it's definitely going back to the essence of Gym Class Heroes, which is four dudes sitting in a room, vibing off each other and making organic, dark metal."
