Terrible Things is slated to release June 3 and was engineered by Nick Ingram and mixed/produced by Machine (also credited for Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, Every Time I Die). An EP release show is scheduled for Friday, June 17 at Park Street Saloon in Columbus, Ohio.

“When I sent my first demo of 'Terrible Things' to the other guys, I honestly expected to be laughed at.  I just figured they'd tell me to stop listening to so much Weezer or something, and I was fully prepared to toss the track into the maybe someday pile,” says vocalist/guitarist David Eselgroth. “Luckily, my band mates had keener foresight than I did; specifically, Jake replied, 'That's it. That's the one'.  I'm really proud of this song because it's such a reach for us stylistically, but at the same time, it feels connected to where we came from.”

The band are also about to embark on a tour supporting Conditions.
