Their first single “Don’t Wanna Wait Forever” broke into the Top 20 at commercial radio and the video garnered heavy adds at Much Music, Much Loud and Musique Plus. “Time To Go” quickly
followed and continues to climb campus and commercial radio charts
while the video picked up heavy adds across the board again.
