In February, the band released Calm Down, Everything Is Fine, which debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top New Artist Albums Chart. New York Minute Mag said it best: “In a time of Bieberesque silliness and hipster pretention, Mike Mains is a voice of reason.”
Spring 2013 brought them an exceedingly successful PledgeMusic campaign in which their fans funded 119% of their $35K goal, to allow them to record their sophomore record, Calm Down, Everything Is Fine. The time-frame surrounding the recording of the new album was by the far the most challenging and most rewarding experience of the bands’ career–between getting their van and trailer stolen, re-recording the entire album, band members coming and going, they truly couldn’t have chosen a more fitting album title. And despite it all, they captured that tension and channeled it– in the form of 11 brand new songs that they are excited to finally share with the world.
