Into the Wide was born in a flood-ruined, cave-like, rat-colonized room in Brooklyn. The band spent more than a year writing together in the windowless studio they rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy, a process Esquire says has "yielded some of the most stunning songs of their career to date."
When it came time to record, the band relocated to Maze Studios in Atlanta and teamed up with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), who helped breathe new life and brighter energy into the songs while still capturing the claustrophobia of their creative writing space in New York.
Into the Wide is receiving early critical acclaim including praise for lead single "From Now On"Consequence of Sound hails, "The track has a booming chorus, as frontman Matt Vasquez warmly sings, 'From now on, Im gonna be a friend over soaring, arena-ready guitars" while
WXPN The Key furthers, "'From Now On is catchy, likable, and gets you excited to hear the rest of the album." Additionally, the albums third teaser trailer, featuring the track "Hold My End Up" is now streaming at Paste: http://bit.ly/1mev6eU.
