“It took a minute to get our heads in the right place, especially with all of the craziness going on in the world.  We started writing and making demos with Carlo Colasacco and YOUTHYEAR and we knew we had tapped into the vibe we were looking for. Tastes Like Gold is the album we wanted to make.”  Tastes Like Gold, produced by Carlo Colasacco, YOUTHYEAR & Lit features No Doubt’s Adrian Young, Butch Walker and American Authors  is available for pre-order HERE in black vinyl, gold vinyl and CD format.

The band have also released a new track for fans from Tastes Like Gold  with, “Kicked Off The Plane” HERE  The autobiographical “Kicked Off The Plane” follows “Yeah Yeah Yeah”- HERE  (live performance video HERE & official video HERE) which was the first single from Tastes Like Gold.
