Following their 2012 self-titled debut that garnered rave reviews and a much-talked about performance on the Late Show with David Letterman, John McCauley (Deer Tick), Robbie Crowell (Deer Tick), Ian Saint Pé (ex-Black Lips guitarist), Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), T. Hardy Morris (Dead Confederate) and Bryan Dufresne (Six Finger Satellite) have come together once again to tap into the collaboration that surprised everyone on the first go round, band members included. The record was recorded in Nashville, TN, at Playground Sound Studio and was produced by Adam Landry and Justin Collins.
