"We refused to be that bitter band you find in the back of every local show complaining about the record industry and crying wolf to every new artist," the statement reads. "Evolve or die. This brings us to Kemosabe/Sony records. When we first sat down with them a few months ago it all seemed too good to be true. We have never met a team as focused, passionate, or real as them."
This announcement comes directly after the official addition of guitarist Nicholas Aranda to the group. Nick has been touring with the band in support of The Peace of the Wild Things since 2012, but his position in the band is now official.
