When asked if the band has begun work on their second album, frontman Jim Lindberg replied:

“The last 5 months, I wish that we had more time to work on that. This is a brand new band, so getting the show lined up and getting various things sorted out takes time. We have a handful of songs that I really like a lot that just need lyrics and things like that. I have a ton of songs that need some work. When we get off of this tour I’d like to do an EP, because we have enough songs for that. We just need to get music out there.”
