Ha I actually took the band name from a Saves The Day song called "Cars and Calories" and I'm glad you dug the set the other night. Were in the studio right now trying to finish up these demos. I wanna say well have at least 3 songs posted by the end of the month? Oh and I'm not sure if its been announced yet but thats never stopped me before, March 27th @ Fletchers in Baltimore, MD w/ You Me and Everyone We Know!

Yes indeed it is! I asked Jake if the band was named after that, sadly no. But it was named after another good one, Saves The Day Cars & Calories :).

Fletchers on the 27th is going to be a good time. I haven't seen those YM&EWK kids around in awhile, however I heard they killed it at SXSW. It's going to be good to have them back in town even if it is only for the night.

Great band, great song however I think Chris Conley said it best.

Her life was magazines
And faithful TV screens
Selling an empty dream
Of cars and calories
Everything in between

Grew up in east LA
Watching celebrities
Living out all [of] her dreams
The plastic canopy
Of US royalty
Drew her gaze towards the sky
Away from her own mind
And it took bites
Out of her insides
Till she was just a hollow shell
