Two years. I'm sitting here on my couch - watching football - Andrew should be here any minute with a pizza - and I've been asked to say a little something about the last two years. To be honest, I thought I'd be ecstatic to get home from two years of touring. What was supposed to be just another album and touring cycle, turned into the craziest two years any of us have ever had. If I were to be asked the very unoriginal question of "what was the highlight of it all so far?", and had to answer it honestly - I would have to say the unwavering support and energy that you guys provided at all of our shows. After all, we never thought any of this would happen...all we ever wanted (at the time) was to continue to play the wild and crazy shows that we had grown so accustomed to at the incarnation of this group. We just thought we would pick up some more fans along the way. Trust me, I will take what its all become...but at the very core of it, it's a bunch of hard working people spending their hard earned money, dancing and singing along while we have the time of our lives. It's an incredible thing. And while it can feel and seem so natural for us being on stage (trust me - you should have seen us backstage before we played in front of our first group of 3,000), I don't think we could have done it if it wasn't for those original fun. fans, coming to their second or third or fourth concert of ours, and embracing the new people that have come along the way. I've always been so proud of the people that come to our shows...it's an eclectic group, free to be whomever they want, just so long as they sing...loud...and it never felt like anyone had to play "catch up" on how it is at the shows.

So while I'm STILL waiting for Andrew to appear, and I'm enjoying the occasional day off (I can sing again!)...I'd prefer he showed up in a van with Jack, Nattie, Emily, and Will. Cause I'm already starting to get that itch. I miss you guys. And you mean the world to us.

So take this free batch of live songs from the last tour, and try to remember what a great time we had. Enjoy WTF...its nice to see it finally catch an official light of day. And rest up. Cause we will be back in your city before you know it.

All the Love In the World,

Nate

Glad to finally be getting WTF. Amidst all the supersaturation, these dudes deserve it and I hope they continue to have success.

Rad. When I saw them during the Most Nights tour, they said that they were going to take a couple months off after they were finished touring and then hit the studio to start work on the next album. Not sure if this is still the plan, but I sure hope so.

As of the last few days of tour (ACL weekend 1/2 and the dates surrounding it) Nate was saying they were going in to write/record some stuff that same week. I think in a few months they'll be ready to put it together and I wouldn't doubt a 2014 release date at all. Nate likes to take his time with writing records, but they all seem really stoked about keeping the ball rolling now that they have finished the touring cycle.

Can anyone explain the title of the EP? Really happy to have a higher quality version of "What The Fuck" even if it's not a studio recording!

Has anyone here seen them live? Genuine question: are they good? I like their music and I think they're very deserving of the popularity, but those are some really high notes in those songs and I was curious if Nate pulls them off. I've heard that EP they did of a live show at Fingerprints iirc and it wasn't that great
