Their debut album (DEBUT!!!) is coming out on April 2nd, with a show to follow at Minibar on April 6. While the title track came for In This Dream out in the Fall, the band’s been at work getting the rest of the album ready. It’s hard to believe that this, for many members of the band, is their first venture into songwriting.
