“Puerto Rico still needs your help,” the band tweeted. “We remixed the audio from our special sets from last October with The Little Kruta String Quartet and put them up for your enjoyment. Please consider a donation as you watch.”

Puerto Rico is still struggling after it was devastated by Hurricane Maria last September, the worst natural disaster on record in the region. “Approximately 450,000 of Puerto Rico's 1.5 million electricity customers are still without power,” The Atlantic reported in January, “and those who do have electricity suffer frequent blackouts.” The band ask that you consider donating to the United Way of Puerto Rico here: fupr.org/donations.

"Nicole Rork has an exceptional eye for catching “that moment” in her photographic work. There aren’t many photographers out there that have both a great sense of timing as well as composition in their work and Nicole has both. She has been attentive to deadlines and quick turnarounds and has always been a great person to work with on many projects over the years. I would highly recommend her to anyone – from a band needing promotional shots to a couple who are ready to enjoy their wedding day." Mike Shea, Alternative Press CEO
