Jeff Gitelman (guitar/vocals) notes of the group’s pairing with Mates of State, “Musically, at times, we share a similar taste for frolic and singing in harmony. And Mates of State are our hometown buddies. They were always very encouraging and supportive of the local scene, which played a big part in helping us believe we can succeed on an independent level as well.This west coast tour is an eagerly awaited collaboration between us.”
